The Luray Police Department, in Page County, Virginia, arrested and charged a woman for making threats at a school board meeting.
On Thursday evening, 42-year-old Amelia King, is said to have violated the code of Virginia 18.2-60 Oral Threat While On School Property.
The Page County School Board had a meeting to talk about the governor’s mask order. It allows students to decide if they want to wear a mask or not.
The school board voted and agreed with the order.
When it was time to take remarks from the public, King stated, “No mask mandates. My child, my children will not come to school on Monday with a mask on. Alright? That’s not happening. And I will bring every single gun loaded and ready.”
Then, she was cutoff by the board for going over her three minute allotment. She then added, “I’ll see you all on Monday.”
King delivered an apology later on that was read at the conclusion of the meeting.
On Friday, police presence was rammed up around area schools.
Reports indicate that King is out of custody on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
