UPDATE: Ringgold High School student Alexandria Justine Greene, 17 was arrested Tuesday and charged with false report of a crime.

The Catoosa County Sheriff's Office says that Green created a fake account on social media, making it appear that she was being threatened and would be killed the next day at school.

She then sent the post to herself and began sharing the post, with herself being the victim. That's when the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office investigation began.

In Georgia, a 17-year-old person is considered an adult, which is why Channel 3 is naming the suspect.
