Posted: Updated:

An Augusta County teenager is charged with a felony because of a tweet.

Sheriff's deputies say two weeks ago a Stuarts Draft teen tweeted he was going to hurt a school official. The tweet allegedly started as a prank, but quickly turned serious according to the school resource officer. Now the teenager is charged with threatening to cause bodily harm, which is a felony.

He is not enrolled at Stuarts Draft High School at this time.
