Man threatens friend over Star Wars spoiler

A man in Montana was more than a little angry when a friend spoiled "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" for him. Police say he threatened to kill the student.

Arthur Charles Roy, 18, of Helena is being held behind bars on $10,000 bail after being charged with felony assault with a weapon Monday.

Police say Roy was enraged last Thursday when he learned details about the new Star Wars movie from a friend on Facebook.

Court records said he sent that friend a picture of himself with a gun and threatened to come to the victim's school to shoot him.

That threat prompted Helena's alternative school to be locked down Friday morning before Roy was arrested that afternoon.
