All charges have been dismissed against a high school teacher who had been accused of making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening a  "Columbine all over again" at a Brooklyn high school.

Sabrina Milo, 34, had been arrested on April 1 after she was allegedly overheard by two teachers making the threat in a break room at Fort Hamilton High School in Bay Ridge, prosecutors had said.

Milo allegedly said she would "settle some scores" by bringing a machine gun into the school, under her trench coat, and that it would be Columbine all over again.  In the 1999 Columbine tragedy, two students dressed in trench coats killed 13 classmates in their suburban Denver high school.

Milo's attorney Andrew Stoll said she is "thrilled that the case has been dismissed, but it's not over for her until she gets back in the classroom and with the kids she's been teaching for years."

Milo has been on paid leave since the incident. Stoll said it would be up to the DOE to return her to the classroom.
