A 9th grade student at Russell County High School has been charged with threatening other students following an investigation on Wednesday by Deputy Evan Burton and school officials.
The 16 year old male is currently being held at the Adair Youth Detention Center on charges of Terroristic Threatening, Wanton Endangerment, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He is scheduled to appear in Russell District Court, Juvenile Division, on Friday.
The investigation began after students reported to school officials of seeing threatening comments made by the alleged perpetrator on Instagram, a social media outlet.
NO weapons were found at RCHS during this investigation. The drug related charges and Wanton Endangerment charge are the result of Methamphetamine found in the juvenile’s bedroom at his home late Wednesday afternoon.
The investigation is ongoing
