A New Braunfels Middle School student was arrested Thursday morning for making threats while on the bus, school officials said.
The district said in a statement on its website that the transportation department had alerted police to an incident on a school bus Thursday morning, where the boy had made threats against fellow riders.
New Braunfels police were called, and the boy was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat, officials said.
School officials did not identify the student.
“The student’s punishment at the campus level will be based on the results of a student discipline hearing and could result in off-campus placement,” the district said.
The criminal charge is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
