NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. — A North Arlington student was charged with two counts of threats after police investigated him for comments and drawings depicting violence Wednesday, police said.

Police on Tuesday were requested to respond to the high school concerning comments and drawings made by the 16-year-old, who was removed from school, police said in a press release.

"Our investigation determined the statements and drawings to be threatening in nature, yet presented no immediate danger," the press release said.
