Ben Davis High School Student Arrested for Making Threat on Social Media
INDIANAPOLIS -- A Ben Davis High School student was arrested Wednesday for making a threat against the school on social media.
Superintendent of Wayne Township schools, Dr. Jeff Butts, said on Twitter that school administrators received information late Wednesday morning about a threat made by a student in a social media chat group.
The student wasn't at school when the threat was made, so Wayne Township School Police went to his house to detain him.
Dr. Butts says officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department questioned the student, and he has been charged as an adult with felony intimidation.
