Yesterday, I was eating with my best friend before our high school's home football game. He got up to get a drink and while he was gone, his ex-girlfriend walked over and sat down at the booth. She looked at me with this smug look on her face and said that she and my best friend were having a baby. She then threatened me by saying that I am never allowed to like my best friend or to even hang out with him or talk to him anymore, or she would hurt me. She then got up and left. My friend then came back and asked what she said, so I told him (leaving out the whole "stay away from him or else" part). He said that it was impossible for her to be pregnant with his baby, and that she was probably faking it to get back at him for breaking up with her. Is he lying to me, or is she lying to everyone? He's only 14, and he's my best friend, but if I try to be there for him, His ex-girlfriend might try to do something to me.

This sounds like manufactured drama to me, particularly given the situation and ages involved.
However, someone threatening to do you harm, ever, is always a serious thing and something I think should be taken seriously.
Since she did this at school, how might you feel about reporting that threat to your school administration?
