OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. — Police say a 17-year-old is facing breach of peace charges following several reports of disturbing behavior from parents and students in Connecticut.

Police Chief Michael Spera said Tuesday the teen has been remanded to state custody and barred from all Old Saybrook school campuses until a court or school officials deem it appropriate.

Spera says there was no evidence of a credible threat against an Old Saybrook school. He says there may be an additional police presence at campuses throughout the week “for no other reason than to allow our students and staff to know we are there to keep them safe.”

Police have not released details about the charges or the student’s identity due to the person’s age.
