'Clock boy' Ahmed Mohamed is moving to Qatar

No charges for Muslim student after clock mistaken for bomb

Ahmed Mohamed will not be charged with possessing a hoax bomb because there's no evidence that the boy meant to cause alarm at his school in Irving, police Chief Larry Boyd said at a news conference.

Boyd said the clock that Ahmed built looked "suspicious in nature," but that he considers the case closed.

Muslim boy, 14, arrested for making clock mistaken for bomb

Ahmed Mohamed, who enjoys tinkering with electronics, proudly took the clock to MacArthur High in Irving on Monday.

But one teacher raised concerns that it looked like a bomb, prompting the school principal and several police officers to question him, search his belongings and march him from the school in handcuffs.

Police don't believe the device is dangerous, but say it could be mistaken for a fake explosive.
