Buckhannon Man Arrested After Threatening Upshur County Board of Education
The Upshur County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Buckhannon man and charged him with threatening a terrorist act.
Tony Vincent Herndon, 45, is accused of calling the Upshur County Board of Education office and leaving a message that said he wanted his rights and privileges re-instated to allow him to be on school property, which had previously been revoked, according to the criminal complaint.
Herndon said if he didn't get his rights and privileges re-instated, the Board of Education "knows what happened in Newtown, Ct.", according to the complaint.
Herndon is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $125,000 bail.
