Man arrested for alleged threats to attack Lassiter High

ATLANTA -- Police in New York have arrested an Atlanta man for threatening to attack Cobb County's Lassiter High School.

Investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Bridger Carreau for allegedly making terroristic threats after he posted a video on his Facebook page in which he appeared with "a large knife, hand gun and long gun" and threatened to "Go full deer hunter" on students.

Students saw the video and alerted school officials on Friday.

It's not clear if Carreau planned to carry out the attack. He was arrested Sunday in New York and will be extradited back to Georgia.
