    Another Sign of the Apocalypse.

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/4499258.html

    DENTON — A high school basketball star is accused of calling in a bomb threat to the school the night of a game he was missing because of a suspension for fighting.

    Howard Stirgus, an 18-year-old who came to Denton in 2005 after fleeing New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, was jailed on suspicion of making a false alarm and abusing the 911 system.

    Authorities said he called Denton High School on Tuesday night, claiming there was a bomb in the building that would detonate in minutes. The call delayed the start of a doubleheader between the Denton and Guyer girls and boys teams for more than an hour while authorities searched the school.

    According to a police report, Stirgus admitted making the calls. He remained in the Denton County Jail today on a $12,500 bond, jail officials said. It was unclear if he had an attorney yet.

    Denton Independent School District Athletic Director Ken Purcell said Stirgus, who averages 21.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, would not play pending a district investigation.

    I've been laughing for the last 10 minutes.

    Oh, to be able to hear his thought process leading to making that call.
