A student at Union Mine High School was arrested Monday after allegedly threatening students at the El Dorado County campus.

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office received a report that a student had made threats against a group of students at the school, located in the town of El Dorado, south of Placerville. School administrators located the student, and a school resource officer began investigating the allegations, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.
