The incident happened March 12 at York One Academy, the district’s alternative school. A York police report states the 19-year-old student tried to sprinkle salt on his lunch but was stopped by a teacher who told him that was against federal guidelines. The student became angry and cursed the teacher and made threats towards her, according to the report.

“Nobody can tell me what to put on my (expletive) food,” the student said, according to the report. “You know what happens to people who mess with me.”

A school resource officer arrested the student and charged him with disturbing school.
