Knox Co. student arrested after bomb threat

BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) –  A Knox Co. student has been arrested after a bomb threat on Monday.

Police say the threat surfaced at Knox Central High School just before noon, but it turned out to be a hoax.

Students were evacuated from the building while Barbourville Police and the Knox Co. Sheriff investigated.

Even though it was a hoax, students were dismissed for the day.  School was cancelled for Tuesday as well.

Police think the threat was inspired by another bomb threat in Knox county last week.
