SYOSSET, N.Y. (AP) A 17-year-old high school student has been charged with making terroristic threats against his Long Island school.

Alexander Passe of Syosset was arraigned on the charge Thursday.

According to Newsday (http://bit.ly/1iyu0JO ), he allegedly told a teacher on Wednesday that he was unhappy at school and "wants to blow it up."

It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer. A man who answered the phone at his home hung up without commenting.
