Ga. girl arrested in threats over missing Mtn. Dew

By The Associated Press
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Police in Athens say a 14-year-old girl has been arrested for threatening to set her family's apartment ablaze over a missing bottle of soda.

Police tell the Athens Banner-Herald the unidentified girl who was already under house arrest became enraged Wednesday when she opened the refrigerator and saw that her Mountain Dew was missing. Authorities say the girl began cursing at her stepfather, who told her to talk to her mother about it.

Authorities say the girl blew cigarette smoke in her mother's face and threatened to set their apartment on fire.

The girl's mother called police and Department of Juvenile Justice officials told police to charge the girl with making terroristic threats. She has been taken into custody by the Clarke County Sheriff's office.
