A Roane County man is in Central Regional Jail after Roane authorities arrested him for a threat of terrorist acts, a felony.

Shayne A. Workman, 34 (left) has bond posted at $150,000.

Roane authorities are saying Workman posted a threat on Facebook that indicated he was going to grab a gun and clear a classroom.

Roane deputies were concerned with a post on August 26, part of which said he indicated "grabbing a gun and clearing a classroom, and would leave me alive and free to continue my work."

Workman's wife filed a domestic petition the next day after she saw the post, police said.

Police are saying they do not know why Workman posted the threat, saying he has no criminal history.
