Crawford County High School student Jokester “J.C.” Ussery, 17, was charged with terroristic threats Tuesday on allegations he threatened to shoot up the school Feb. 14.

The incident was brought to the attention of the Roberta Police Department today. The school was closed Friday and Monday for the Presidents’ Day holiday. Ussery did not attend school Thursday.

Working in conjunction with prosecutors, police obtained a warrant for Ussery’s arrest this afternoon. Ussery’s bond has been set at $5,000. He is barred from having any weapons in his home.

Ussery is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
