Police have made an arrest in the case that shook up Berwick earlier this week - and it is the alleged victim who is accused. 

Berwick High School was placed on lockdown, and the police department worked extra security at the school for several days the first week of October after a student said he received a threatening chat message. 

McKinley Myers, 17, of Bayou Vista was booked on a warrant with criminal mischief and terrorizing, Police Chief James Richard said. 

The student allegedly told police that he received a message from someone who said he was watching him, and was going to harm him and other students at the school, the chief said. 

After an investigation, police allegedly determined that Myers sent the messages to himself, Richard said. 

The incident upset the entire two for several days, the chief said, because children were checked out of school, people were afraid and the entire police department was focused on protecting the school and its students.
