The student, whose name has not been released, is being held on a charge of making threats causing the disruption of a school.
Police said around 7 a.m., an alleged threat involving a gun was posted on Snapchat by a student, so police and school officials began an investigation.
That speculation turned into rumor that exploded Thursday night and got the attention of law enforcement, according to Eby. No threat has been made against the school in recent days.

The game won by Australia was the first global match to be played in the north-eastern city of Guwahati for eight years. No-one was injured in the incident that happened as the team was returning to their hotel from the Barsapara Stadium.
"We let [the school] know that we put some extra people on because some of the parents had some concerns", he said. "This threat was immediately investigated by the Cody High School administration and by local law enforcement".
The male student at Powhatan High School was charged with making threats to commit serious bodily harm to persons on school property. In response, the Easley Police Department increased their presence in Easley schools as a reassuring measure. However, we are also careful not to assist in the spread of misinformation which is sometimes spread by students out of a desire to disturb or skip school. "The safety of students and staff is of the utmost importance, and appropriate action is being taken by both the Lowell Police Department and Lowell Public Schools". Unfortunately, we live in a time when the threat of violence is something we must always be prepared for, which is why we have a full-time police presence at Easley High School. Police officers were sent to the school, however, to help with any students who needed support.
