CSA New Tech student arrested for allegedly threatening another student

A CSA New Tech student was arrested Monday after allegedly threatening another student.

Larry Perkinson, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation’s employee and student assistance coordinator, says that another CSA New Tech student reported receiving threatening messages through social media. That student shared the information with school officials on Monday morning. This led school officials to involve the school resource officers who conducted an investigation.

Perkinson says that the student that allegedly made the threats was not at school but was contacted by Columbus police and later arrested. That student’s identity has not been released.
