A Parkway High School student was arrested Tuesday night after posting violent threats aimed at the school on Facebook.

Nolan Asszony, 17, of Bossier City, was charged with terrorizing after posting a detailed sketch and information of acts of violence that would take place at Parkway High School at a later date. He told deputies he made the posting to Facebook around 4 p.m. Tuesday so people could see how he draws and what he’s into. Deputies say the posting went into great detail on how Asszony would carry out his plan of violence.

“When you make a statement of violence against a school, we are going to take that very seriously,” said Capt. Danny Dison of the Bossier Sheriff’s Department and director of security for the Bossier Parish School System.

Dison also wanted to ensure parents, students and faculty of Parkway High School that there is no imminent threat to the school

According to Louisiana Revised Statute 14:40.1, terrorizing is the intentional communication of information that the commission of a crime of violence is imminent or in progress or that a circumstance dangerous to human life exists or is about to exist…” The charge carries a fine up to $15,000 or imprisonment with or without hard labor for not more than 15 years, or both.

Asszony was booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility. His bond is set at $10,000.
