Courtney Isiah Thomas, a Birmingham Seaholm High School graduate who was charged with ethnic intimidation in a written threat, was bound over to Oakland County Circuit Court in Michigan Tuesday because there is probable cause to proceed with a case against him. Thomas, 18, is African-American.
As BET.com reported in May, Thomas confessed to writing racist comments on a bathroom wall about himself and four other students. Seaholm High School has 1,250 students and about 70 of them African-American.
Thomas refused to comment after Tuesday's hearing. He is free on bond and must comply with a 7 p.m. curfew.
