A former Northwest Whitfield High School student is charged with terroristic threats and acts after police say he repeatedly rode by a teacher's house, shouted obscenities, sent her text messages and made threats on his Facebook page.

Dillian Wayne Jones, 17, was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the Whitfield County Jail until his first court appearance on the felony charge.

Tunnel Hill Police Chief Roy Brunson said the teacher, Shara Cook, filed a complaint about Jones last week. After an investigation, Brunson said police had enough evidence that they couldn't "just ignore it."

"He was insinuating he might do something," Brunson said.

The sheriff said Jones is being charged as an adult.

Jones attended the high school last year, but was not a student there this year, Brunson said. He said he did not know whether Cook had taught Jones. Jones was friends with Cook's son, Brunson said.
