COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A 17-year-old student has been charged with making terroristic threats after being accused of threatening a school worker.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports Columbus police arrested the student without incident Wednesday as he tried to leave Spencer High School. The teenager pleaded not guilty to the felony charge Thursday. A judge set bail at $2,500.

Richard MacLaughlin was working as a security guard at the school when he responded to a call. MacLaughlin said the threat was made through intimidation, and no weapon was found on the student.

Curtis Crawford said the incident occurred after he told the student to get away from his desk. The student then threatened to “bust a cap.”

The report described Crawford as a “suspension technician.”



Assistant Principal Jeffery Jones said the student faces suspension.
