KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy has been arrested after being accused of making a bomb threat on the wall of a Knox County high school bathroom.

In what was the latest in a series of threats at Farragut High School, the threat caused classes to be halted and the building to be evacuated for more than two hours on Tuesday.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that the unidentified student is being charged with making a bomb threat and vandalism.

Deputies say they are expecting to make more arrests in connection with the incident.

Three other bomb threats have been found written on restroom walls at Farragut High School since Feb. 25.
