CLEMMONS, NC (WGHP) — A Winston-Salem woman was arrested Thursday and charged with threatening to shoot a school bus, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
A student riding a Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools bus spoke to a family member on the phone. While talking on the speakerphone, the family member threatened to shoot the bus and have other family members shoot the bus as well.
The bus driver immediately notified the school administration and law enforcement, and the deputies responded to the bus and the school.
The bus made it to the school safely and MPs said they had determined the threat was not credible.
The deputies remained on the Clemmons Middle School campus during their investigation and the remainder of the school day.
Lasheika Marie Ziglar, 29, of Winston-Salem, was arrested and charged with hoaxing mass violence against educational institutions.
Ziglar received a $10,000 secured bond.
