A 14-year-old student at Calloway County High School in Kentucky has been charged with falsely reporting an incident after complaints of a social media threat against the school.

The Calloway County Sheriff's office got several complaints about a social media post reporting a threat to the high school. School and Sheriff's Office investigators conducted several interviews to look into the threat.

They determined the post was not credible but did find enough evidence to arrest the 14-year-old student and charge the juvenile with falsely reporting an incident.

There will be additional security at Calloway County Schools on January 25.

Sheriff Sam Steger would also like to encourage anyone that witnesses any unusual or possible criminal activity to call the Sheriff’s Office at 270-753-3151 or utilize the tips@callkyso.com.
