WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. — A Pasco County high school student was arrested after deputies say she threatened to kill a teacher because she was failing his class.

The 14-year-old is a student at Cypress Creek High School in Wesley Chapel.


Pasco Sheriff's Office says the girl sent an email to one of her teachers saying "I am going to kill you."

She told deputies she sent the email because she was angry with her teacher because she was failing his class.

She was arrested for written threats to kill or do bodily harm and transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center at Land O' Lakes Detention Center.
