Five teenage girls were arrested this week for allegedly using a blog to threaten a fellow High School student they believed was going to testify against their friend in a marijuana possession arrest.

According to
Greenwich Time, Greenwich High School Headmaster Al Capasso said, “These girls were extremely unhappy and posted (messages) talking about extremely derogatory and obscene language and threats,” Capasso said.

Greenwich Schools Superintendent Larry Leverett said the four Greenwich High School girls arrested were given multi-day suspensions.

“There was an exchange of threats precipitated by a disciplinary incident at the high school, and they were of a sufficient nature to raise our concern,” Leverett said.

Three of the girls, two from Greenwich and one from Stamford, all 17 years old, were arrested on warrants Monday and charged with tampering with a witness — a felony — in addition to single counts of threatening, and second-degree harassment, according to police.

On Tuesday, two more Greenwich girls, both 16, were charged with single counts of threatening, and second-degree harassment, according to police.
