Mineral Wells High School student arrested after terroristic threat

A Mineral Wells High School student was arrested Wednesday on charges of terroristic threat against a public servant. The student was arrested Wednesday morning before school following a police investigation Tuesday at the student’s residence in the southeast side of town.

The Mineral Wells Index police were alerted to a Facebook posting by the student reportedly claiming the student had acquired a firearm and was planning to use it against a police officer.

Police gathered enough information after their investigation to elicit probable cause to arrest the youth, and the student was referred to the Palo Pinto County Juvenile Probation Office.
