LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Doss High School student was arrested Tuesday after a school official discovered threatening messages on the student's Twitter page.

According to an arrest warrant, Javoon Hobson, 18, made multiple statements through his Twitter account on March 14 indicating that students and staff at Doss High School were in danger. The warrant states that Hobson, a student at Doss, tweeted that he planned to put the school on lockdown on Thursday, March 20.

The Doss High School principal showed the tweets to the school's resource officer. According to police, one tweet read, "Next Thursday, Doss High School will be getting locked down and I promise you that. So if you ain't with the [expletive], stay home."

When another student asked why Hobson made the statement, police said Hobson replied, "What's already said don't need to be explained." He added, "Drama eventually get you caught up and killed." Police have screen shots of the tweets.

Other students verified the Twitter account belongs to Hobson.

Police said Hobson was at school briefly on March 14 but left around 8:45 a.m. when he was signed out by a parent.

Hobson is charged with terroristic threatening.
