A student at Whitewater High School in Fayette County, Ga., has been arrested on two charges of making terroristic threats after he said he would bring a gun to school to confront bullies who targeted him for allegedly being gay.
"We believe these threats were apparently made in response to a series of taunts by several other students," Fayette County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Brent Rowan told WSB Radio.
According to WSB, the student, who is 16, was apparently being teased for his sexual orientation. He has been suspended for 10 days. It is unclear what punishment, if any, the alleged bullies face at school, but they are not facing any criminal charges.
