A Massachusetts high school student is expected to face a judge on Wednesday after allegedly threatening to harm a staff member.
Scott Arnold, 18, of East Bridgewater, was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with making a threat to commit a crime.
Police said they were notified during the day by officials at East Bridgewater Junior Senior High School that Arnold allegedly made threatening remarks that he wanted to kill a school staff member.
Following an investigation, police determined Arnold made the remarks at the school to another student. Police then obtained an arrest warrant and placed Arnold under arrest.
Arnold's home was later searched by police but it was determined he did not have access to a weapon.
In a statement, East Bridgewater Police Chief Scott Allen said threats are not taken lightly.
"Given what has been happening across the country, it is vital that students and faculty remain vigilant and as always, if you see or hear something, say something," Allen said.
Arnold was ordered held on $40 bail and is expected to be arraigned in Brockton District Court. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
