Oregon teen says bullies set his car on fire


BRUSH PRAIRIE, Wash. (KOIN) – Freddie Potwin is a student at Hockinson High School, and says he is often the target of bullies.

He says he has been harassed and threatened, but this past weekend, the bullying reached a whole new level. Potwin says they set his car on fire, right outside his house.

Potwin has talked to police and school officials, but says nothing is being done.

“I just hope that the school will do something about other people who are messing with people, being bullied online, social media, everything. Just – they can do something about it. Better communications throughout the school, too,” he says.

The Clark County Fire Marshal confirms the car was set on fire early Saturday morning, and they are investigating.
