Kansas Teacher Arrested After Threats Toward School

KSAL StaffMay 23, 2013

A teacher at a suburban Wichita high school was arrested after the district reported he had made criminal threats against the school.

The 39-year-old teacher at Maize High School reportedly made the comments during a soccer game Tuesday night.

The school’s principal, Chris Botts, said in an email sent to school parents Wednesday the comments suggested possible violence toward the school. He says the school was searched and there was no indication the threat was valid.

Sedgwick County jail records show the teacher was booked on charges of criminal threat and was held on $250,000 bond.

Maize school administrators said the teacher has been placed on paid leave until the investigation is complete.
