A Henry Clay High School student was arrested Monday on charges of terroristic threatening.
Lexington police said they took the student into custody around 2:30 p.m. Monday for questioning. The student was then charged with terroristic threatening that night. In a letter home to Henry Clay High School parents Tuesday, it states that the Fayette County School District takes these threats very seriously. The letter said that in addition to what charges the student faces in court, he will also face serious consequences by the school district.
The school district reported that more than 800 kids either didn't show up, or went home early from Henry Clay High School Monday because of the rumored threat.
