Rape threats or "grape" threats? Bizarre arrest of high school student, alleged Hitler lover
|The student claimed to be a fan of this guy.|
He'd talked about being a "grapist," not a rapist, he insisted.
When the deputy stressed how important it was that he be honest with her, the document says he freaked out, yelling that he wanted an attorney and invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

The student is reportedly in the custody of Grand Junction's Division of Youth Corrections at this writing.
Here's the arrest affidavit.
