ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) - Court documents say an Arlington gym teacher was arrested for reportedly saying he would murder kids.

According to police reports filed in court Tuesday, another Presidents Elementary teacher reported that Andrew Thomas Medley told him last week that he was “going to murder everyone’s children in the building and make them watch.”

The other teacher says Medley seemed agitated and when asked how he was doing, Medley said he was not OK.

Medley was arrested Monday and is being held for investigation of felony harassment.

Medley’s lawyer Robert O’Neal says the teacher was distressed from going through divorce and did not mean what he said.

The school district has placed Medley on administrative leave while it conducts its own investigation.
