Juvenile Charged After Threatening To ‘shoot up’ Local School

A 13-year-old Haynes Middle School student was arrested for posting a threat on social media. Metro Nashville Police officials say the young teen threatened to “shoot up” the school in an Instagram post. Detectives say the Instagram account appeared to have been created for the sole purpose of posting the threat. They traced the account back to the student with the identification of the telephone number used to make the post, as well as the address of the student. The 13-year-old admitted to posting the threat, which he said was intended as a joke. No weapons were found in the student’s bedroom. He was charged at juvenile court with making a false report of an emergency, which, under Tennessee law, is a felony.

Auto Shops Busy As Number Of Mid-State Potholes Grows

As of Thursday afternoon, Metro Nashville Public Works crews had filled in more than 9,000 potholes in 2019. Those potholes meant issues for drivers, who said they could barely get around without hitting a hole in the road. Local auto shops said they have been filled with drivers who have damages from potholes. The most common damages that come from potholes are punctured tire walls, steering misalignment, and wheel rim damage. Drivers can also apply for the state to reimburse repairs made because of potholes on state-maintained roads. You can go to the Tennessee Department of Treasury website to apply to be paid back. Investigators will review whether TDOT knew about the pothole, if crews had enough time to repair the it, and will look at several other factors.


MAYOR BRILEY REGRETS NOT GIVING RAISES TO METRO EMPLOYEES

Nashville Mayor David Briley took office a year ago today and last night, he met with neighbors in Donelson. He answered questions about everything from the budget to kid crimes. Briley said his biggest disappointment since taking office is not giving cost-of-living raises to Metro employees. “And that is especially true for police,” said Briley. “They have all stuck to the job and worked hard and we have so much to be proud of when it comes to our police department.” The Fraternal Order of Police called out the mayor last week with a billboard saying he broke a promise. The mayor continues his tour in the Nations next week.
