Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 17-year-old Carolina Forest High School student was arrested on a charge of disturbing the school after he allegedly sent a profane text message to the school's wrestling coach and made several threatening remarks about the school, according to a Horry County Police report.

On Monday, police were called to the principal's office, where the wrestling coach said that he had problems with the student during a weekend wrestling match, and removed the student from the team for "being disrespectful toward him," according to the report.

The coach told police the student sent him a profanity-laced text message. The student was also overheard making several threatening remarks about the school.

The student and his mother were called to the principal's office; the student explained that got mad because he felt the coach was picking on him, the report stated. The student denied making two of the statements, but did admit to sending the text message, and to making the other remarks, the report stated.

He was charged with Disturbing Schools and arrested on Tuesday.
