In what has been described as an “unfortunate sign of contemporary times” by Osceola County Prosecutor Anthony Badovinac, a Reed City High school senior, is facing charges.

Badovinac said Devin Lodholtz, 17 of Reed City, has been charged with brandishing a firearm in Public, a 90-day misdemeanor and  using a computer to commit a crime, a seven-year felony.

“The charges stem from an alleged post on snap-chat by the defendant which allegedly shows the defendant brandishing a firearm while addressing a high-school classmate,” Badovinac said in a statement. “The defendant has been arraigned and a pre-trial has been set.”

According to published reports, court documents report the incident took place on Jan. 23 in Reed City. The suspect was arrested by the Reed City Police Department.

The use of a computer to commit a crime is a felony, according to published reports, with a maximum penalty of up to seven years in prison. The charge of brandishing a firearm in public is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
