ELYRIA -- A Lorain County Community College student has been arrested and charged after police said he threatened to shoot GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

A teacher at Lorain County Community College said that during the time students were doing group work in class Monday, she overheard Shaquille Brown say he wanted to shoot Romney.

The 19-year-old Brown of Elyria was charged Wednesday in Elyria Municipal Court with one count of inducing panic.

Police say Brown told them he didn't even have a gun to do such a thing. He was booked into Lorain County Jail and later released after posting a $5,000 bond.

Brown told The Associated Press Wednesday he was just making a joke and never said anything about shooting.
