Police: Georgia Teen Accused of Threatening Trump Arrested

GREENVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Georgia teenager accused of threatening the life of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on social media.

Meriwether County Sheriff Chuck Smith said Friday that a 15-year-old boy was arrested. His arrest is the second announced this week in the state after a 16-year-old in Troup County was arrested for making an alleged death threat toward Trump on social media.

The teens’ names haven’t been released and neither have the nature of their alleged threats.

Smith says the 15-year-old boy is charged with terroristic threats and acts. The death threat was reported to the FBI Hotline, who forwarded the information onto the U.S. Secret Service and Meriwether authorities.

The 15-year-old boy is being held at the Columbus Regional Youth Detention Center pending a hearing in juvenile court.
