Student's comments land him in jail on terrorizing charge
BOOKED: Dalton Leggett, 18, one felony count of terrorizing

DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A Logansport High student is being held on a felony charge of terrorizing.

Dalton Leggett, 18, Mansfield, has been in DeSoto Parish Detention Center since being arrested Monday.

No bond has been set.

A bond hearing likely will be held Wednesday.

Leggett was arrested after making comments in front of fellow students that some found to be threatening.

At some point, a teacher also overheard some of the conversation and became concerned.

"At no time did we believe it was anything other than comments," DeSoto Sheriff Jayson Richardson said, noting that no gun or any other potential weapon was found.

But such comments must be taken seriously, he added.

"This is not something we can play with anymore."
