You've dropped out of school, but you've not told your parents. And you've been taking thousands of dollars in tuition money from them.

What should you do when graduation day rolls around?

Former Quinnipiac University student Danielle Shea, 22, decided to call in two bombs threats, hoping that it would get the ceremony cancelled.

It wasn't, though officials did relocate the ceremony.

She was arrested at the ceremony in graduation garb and charged with threatening in the first degree and falsely reporting an incident.

Shea told officials she was afraid her mother would check the graduation roster and realise her name wasn't on it, reported NY Daily News.
