BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – New information has developed about the Western Kentucky student who was arrested last fall after posting a bomb threat on social media.

According to court documents, 21-year-old Hailee Reed has pleaded guilty to second-degree terroristic threatening.

Last September, Reed made an anonymous post on the social media app Yik Yak that a bomb threat was coming to a parking structure on the WKU campus.

The post caused several buildings to be evacuated.

Reed was originally charged with first-degree terroristic threatening, but court documents state the charge was amended as part of a plea agreement and a pre-trial diversion based upon the completion of Reed’s WKU degree and other conditions.
