Threats to burn down 4 schools in Louisiana lead the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office to arrest Shane Kersey.

The best part of this arrest? According to WWL, the sheriff's spokesman said Kersey told investigators, "The foil wrapped around his head secured by a baseball cap was there to prevent microwave signals from entering his head."

Later Kersey admitted to placing the threats and no threatening devices were found at the schools.

According to police, Shane Kersey has a very extensive prior criminal history with multiple arrests for Possession of Narcotics, Simple Burglary, Aggravated Battery, Criminal Trespassing, Theft, Illegal Possession of a Weapon, along with numerous traffic related offenses.

Kersey was booked into the JPCC with two counts of Terrorizing, along with being a fugitive from Plaquemines Parish on a simple burglary warrant.
