Teen cited for threatening to blow up school

The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department has cited a 12-year-old Lodi student for allegedly threatening to blow up Henderson School on Tuesday.

Deputies were called to the school at 13541 N. Extension Road in Lodi on the report of a bomb threat.

The principal told deputies it was the not the first time the suspect had made such threats, according to a report.

The juvenile, whose name was not released because of his age, was cited for criminal threats and disrupting a school.

Man hit by car taken to hospital

A 79-year-old Lodi man hit by a vehicle Thursday morning and transported by ambulance to Lodi Memorial Hospital was listed in good condition Thursday evening.

Oscar Melton suffered a broken leg and a cut on his head.

He was crossing Louie Avenue at Lincoln Avenue when he was hit by a 17-year-old driver, who was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian, police said.

The male driver was not identified because he is a juvenile.
