A 15-year-old student at Louisa County High School was arrested Wednesday, Nov. 11 after writing a threatening letter to administrators at the high school.

Principal Lee Downey and several assistant principals were the subject of the threats. None of the parties referenced in the letter were injured.
The explanatory letter sent home by the school states that other students brought the threats to the attention of school staff  who then promptly notified the sheriff’s office.
“We take these matters very seriously and this behavior will not be tolerated,” the letter reads.
The school’s resource officers Nathan Harris and Corporal Rob Sarnoski arrested the student.
The student is facing a felony charge of threatening.
