TNHS student taken into custody after alleged social media threat against school


Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018 — A 15-year-old Thomas Nelson High School student was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon and charged with making a threat against the school.

According to a statement to the media released Tuesday morning, the allegedly threat followed an altercation between the student and another Thomas Nelson student at the school on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018. Neither student was in school the next day.

School administrators learned Tuesday of a Snapchat post over the weekend that could be described as a threat against the school. Administrators contacted the Bardstown Police Department Tuesday about the social media posting, and after an investigation, the juvenile was taken into police custody Tuesday afternoon.

“Our administrative team at TNHS responded quickly,” Tom Brown, interim superintendent said through the press release. “We take any threat seriously and we are going to make sure we do everything possible to keep all of our kids safe.”

The investigation and follow up on this matter is continuing.

The names of the students involved was not released.
