Is ruining the end of the new Star Wars movie a total buzzkill? Sure. But serious enough to threaten shooting a friend? Probably not.

Well, that’s what happened when Arthur Charles Roy of Montana got angry when a kid shared a subplot in a Facebook post. But his response wasn’t simply a joke that he left in the comment section- instead he sent the victim a picture of him holding a gun, alleging it was a Colt 1911 with a “hair trigger.”

The friend responded by calling a school resource officer to report the threat, which was taken so seriously that his school was shut down for the better part of Friday morning. Roy was arrested on Friday afternoon much to his mothers dismay, who claims it was just a BB gun.

Roy was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon and has been jailed with his bail set at $10,000. May the force be with him.
