Man In Jail For Threats

A man who allegedly wrote threats to Bedford County students on a bathroom wall at a Lebanon truck stop was arrested Friday afternoon.
Ricky Glenn Petty, 46, of McBurg Road in the Frankewing area of Lincoln County has been charged with filing a false report, Detective Sgt. Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said.
“There was a threat directed toward schoolyard children in Shelbyville,” Crews said. Police are declining to release the exact wording of the messages.
