Fairmont, W.Va. (AP) -- An East Fairmont High School student is free on $15,000 bond after allegedly text-messaging death threats to two other students and warning of action against the school itself.

Authorities say 18-year-old Chase Dylan Satterfield of Fairmont threatened to kill a male and female student around Feb 15.

A criminal complaint says Satterfield also claimed he would go to the school and cause bad things to happen.

Though the message apparently was not specific, the complaint says Satterfield claimed his actions would make history.

Satterfield was arraigned by Marion County magistrate Melissa Pride Linger.

The magistrate's assistant said Thursday that Satterfield has not yet been assigned an attorney.

    "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can't hurt me" At the most, I can see a mental health hygene hearing for this 18 yr old if that verbage was considered to be a serious assault to persons but criminal action beyond that is a poor initial knee-jerk, political response.
