Your friend is lucky to have a friend like you to confirm that prank phone calls are, in fact, illegal, as are threats against life and property. So, do let your friend know that you have posted some of the facts about their potential case on the open internet. If your friend does get arrested, they would do well to invoke their right against self incrimination and retain an attorney to assist in their defense.
