If 18-year-old Cameron D'Ambrosia was just trying to buff up his image as budding rapper "CammyDee," he picked the worst possible time and place. The high school student in the Boston suburb of Methuen is being held on $1 million bail and charged with making terrorist threats because of some Facebook posts, reports the Eagle-Tribune. If the charges stick and he's convicted, it could mean 20 years. A hearing is set for next week to try to determine how much of a threat he really poses.

Among the lines that caught the attention of a classmate at Methuen High School, according to the Boston Herald: "(Expletive) a boston bominb (sic) wait till u see the (expletive) I do, I’ma be famous rapping, and beat every murder charge that comes across me!” And: "So when u see me (expletive) go insane and make the news, the paper, and the (expletive) federal house of horror known as the white house, Don’t (expletive) cry or be worried because all YOU people (expletive) caused this (expletive)."
