“Disturbing” social media posts brought authorities to Lakeside High School Thursday, when two students were suspended, but not charged.
Students alerted school officials after seeing comments posted on Twitter by two 17-year-old students, Columbia County Chief of School Safety Lance Poss said.
“It was some comments that they were making, stuff they like to do and see,” Poss said, adding the comments were “graphic.” “There were absolutely no direct threats made to the school or to any individual student or to anyone.”
School officials notified the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, whose deputies interviewed the teens. No one was charged, according to sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
Deputies did find some graphic drawings in a backpack belonging to one of the teens.
“It was some kind of disturbing drawings that raised some eyebrows and raised some concerns,” Poss said. “There were no threats.”
Superintendent Charles Nagle said the teens were suspended pending the outcome of a disciplinary hearing before the school system safety officer.
