Central, SC -

A teenager has been arrested and charged with making threatening statements at school.

Chief Deputy Creed Hashe of the Pickens County Sheriff's Office stated that the unidentified 16-year-old Daniel High student was charged with disturbing school and breach of peace stemming from an incident on October 18.

According to Hashe, the school's resource officer, along with school administrator's responded to a classroom at the request of a teacher to investigate "alarming" statements made by the student in the presence of the teacher. The student was removed from class and suspended from school pending an expulsion hearing which was held Thursday.

Hashe said that the sheriff's office could not comment directly on the investigation prior to it being heard in Family Court, but he did say that the student made statements about the use of hazardous devices and firearms. No specific student was identified with the statements or targeted as a potential victim.

The student has not been allowed back on campus since the incident and no weapons or contraband was discovered or found on school property, Hashe added. The student will have a hearing in Family Court later today to review the case and make a decision.
