On 8 Dec 08 the assistant principal at the Washington County Career Center reported a sixteen year old student appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. Deputy Mankins noticed the student, a Marietta resident, had an odor of alcohol and glassy, bloodshot eyes.

Following a threatening comment made to them by a seventeen year old Whipple resident on Friday 5 Dec, three Washington County Career Center students reported to school administrators Monday that they feared for their safety. The students said while they were in the Forestry Lab the suspect said in an angry tone of voice that he would bring a gun to school and shoot them. Leaving school without further incident Friday, the suspect was seen back at school Monday sharpening his pencil with a knife. Though the student denied being in possession of a knife when questioned by the schools principal, the principal found the knife concealed in the student’s pocket. Upon completion of an investigation Deputy Sheriff Mankins arrested the teenager for being delinquent and transported him to the Washington County Juvenile Center. If committed by an adult the offenses committed would be carrying a concealed weapon and aggravated menacing.
