ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - A judge has banned a University of Georgia student from Clarke County - where the school is located - while he faces charges related to a threatening post on social media.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1sn1CF3 ) a judge granted Ariel Omar Arias $8,000 bond. As a bond condition the judge banned him from Clarke County except for court appearances.

The 19-year-old had been held without bond since his arrest Friday on two felony counts of terroristic threats.

Police say Arias used a smartphone app to anonymously post, “If you want to live don’t be at the MLC at 12:15.” The Zell B. Miller Learning Center was evacuated for about an hour after students reported the threat.

Police say Arias admitted to making the post and called it an “immature prank.”
