(AP) Police were called to First Baptist Church of Ash Flat, Arkansas to arrest an 11-year-old boy Sunday on suspicion of making terroristic threats.
The bible school teacher, Lisa Forster, dialed 911 to report a boy for invoking the so-called "Killing Curse", or "Avada Kedavra" from the Harry Potter books during a Sunday School lesson. In the books, the followers of an evil wizard use the curse to kill their enemies.
"I seen that boy point a wand at another boy in my class, and he said the curse right at him," Ms. Forster told reporters, "I felt like he meant it, and was worried something could really happen, so I called the police, and the cursed boy's parents."
The parents of the "cursed" boy took their son the the hospital "just in case," Ms. Forster added.
As the affected youth had been taken to the hospital, police decided to arrest the boy who performed the "curse". Police said they are considering charges of making terroristic threats against the young would-be wizard.
