FOLLOW UP: A Tullahoma man now faces two counts of terrorism in connection with alleged threats made at a Bedford County school late last year.

According to the Shelbyville Times Gazette, 43 year-old Tyrone L. Watts was indicted by the Bedford County grand jury. After being arrested on the charges, he was released from the county jail on $50,000 bond.

The indictments allege that Watts committed the act of terrorism by intentionally initiating or circulating a report of a past, present or impending bombing, fire or other emergency, knowing the report was false and knowing it would place a person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury, intended, directly or indirectly, to intimidate or coerce a civilian population.
