A student was arrested at College Station High School on Tuesday on accusations of making a terroristic threat, school officials said.
According to an email sent by principal Tiffany Parkerson to College Station High School parents Tuesday afternoon, the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office investigated the report, which resulted in an arrest. No other information was given about the nature of the threat, though the email urged parents to continue talking with their children about the severity of such actions.
Several students have been arrested this school year on terroristic threat charges. A student at International Leadership of Texas in College Station was arrested Sept. 30, and one student was arrested at A&M Consolidated Middle School on Oct. 8, with a Wellborn Middle School student accused of making a threat on Oct. 9. That student was detained Oct. 10, officials said.
Making a terroristic threat is considered a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail.
