McMinn County High student charged with cyber-bullying

A youth has been charged in a cyber-bullying case involving students at McMinn County High School, according to WRCB-TV Channel 3.

School Resource Officer Guy McGill investigated reports by students and parents about intimidating comments directed at high school students from a fake Facebook account.

McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy said the posts had been sent from the accused student’s phone. He and Director of Schools Mickey Blevins had been looking into the case for a few weeks, he said.

Sheriff Guy said the alleged culprit was one of the first to report the incident, but made inconsistent reports along the way that led to police apprehension. Blevins said the student had been “disciplined according to policy.”
