MILTON, Wis. (WREX) — A Wisconsin teenager has been charged after police say they created a racist meme. 

The Rock County State's Attorney's office has charged the teenager with one count of Unlawful use of computerized communication systems. 

The post in question makes an insensitive reference to slavery, comparing it to high school football. 

The teenager's name has not been released at this time. 

The school district told our sister station, 27 News, earlier this month, that the student was going to be disciplined, but did not say how.
