Bomb threat

Sheriff's department deputies immediately evacuated students and faculty from the building. Due to some confusion concerning the message, the Carter County Administration Building on Academy Street was also evacuated. 911 advised deputies at the Lift Academy that the call had been placed from inside the school. Sgt. Patrick Johnson and Investigator Audrey Covington questioned students. According to the sheriff's department report, a male student at the academy admitted making the call. The student said the call was a prank, and no bomb was found in the building. The boy was taken into custody and escorted to the jail, where he gave a full confession to investigators.
