Gahanna-Lincoln High school Principal Dwight Carter said it all started Friday night when several high school students received, what he called "inappropriate messages" on their Twitter accounts.
"About their conduct, or alleged conduct, or perceived conduct, and their personality and things of that nature. So the student was constantly making comments about that and the other students were referring it to me," said Carter.
Carter said he contacted Twitter and they shut down the anonymous account.
Then around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, a video using the masked character from the movie, "V for Vendetta," continued to talk about how the students "lived their lives."
The video said: "Next time we meet, I will have something more interesting to show you all."
Gahanna Police said by Sunday they had developed a suspect and an address.
They arrested Spencer Pearson, 16, and he is being charged with inducing panic involving a school which is a second degree felony.
"It did induce panic there is no doubt about that we received here at the police department received more than 200 phone calls from either students or parents of students who were extremely concerned about the video that was sent out," said Ken Bell, Gahanna Police Deputy Chief.
The superintendent said parents and students can feel confident tomorrow.
"Coming to school tomorrow is safe, and we are taking all precautions to make sure their safety will be intact for tomorrow as they start the school week," said Francis Scruci.
Tomorrow, the legal process begins for one of their classmates.
The suspect is currently being held at the Franklin County Juvenile Detention Center.
