A teacher told the school resource officer that Riddle threatened her on April 30 after she had a female student stand outside of her classroom after the student, Riddle's girlfriend, fell into her. Riddle reportedly yelled at the teacher, saying it wasn't the girl's fault, that he pushed her into the teacher.
