High School Threats

A New Brockton High School student is facing felony charges for allegedly threatening the lives of young girls and their boyfriends.

Eighteen-year-old Michael Carroll faces a charge of making terrorist threats to other students. In addition, Carroll reportedly threatened to blow up the school.

Coffee County Sheriff Deputy Dale Grimes displayed the letters reportedly written by Carroll.

He says in the letters there are drawings and threats made against several female students.

Coffee County Sheriff Ben Moates says in light of such school tragedies like Columbine several years ago, student threats are taken seriously across the country.

Moates says, “You can never be too safe, we want the parents to be assured that their kids will be safe. When they're dropped off they'll be safe in school while they are there.”

Carroll was released from the Coffee County Jail under a two$2,000 bond.

Sources tell News 4 that he is no longer a student at New Brockton High School.
