HAWTHORNE, NV - Mineral County sheriff's investigators have arrested a high school student on harassment charges after a threat made on Facebook.

The threat appeared on line against a teacher at Mineral County High School Friday, March 28. The sheriff's office hasn't revealed the exact nature of the threat.

Sheriff Stewart Handte tells KOLO 8 News Now the male student threatened the life of the female teacher and has been suspended from school. He is being held at the juvenile detention facility in Carson City, since Mineral County doesn't have one of its own. No bail has been set.

Because he is a juvenile, his name and age haven't been released.
