An East Central High School student has been arrested for making undisclosed threats on Twitter.

A school district spokesperson would not get into specifics about the threats Tuesday, except to say what the 16-year-old male student posted was “offensive and threatening.”

The teen is expected to appear in juvenile court Wednesday. He also faces disciplinary action with the district.
