A Piqua man accused of threatening "to shoot up" a Piqua school in May pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a grand jury indictment charging him with felony making false alarms.
William Ingle, 21, was accused of threatening to carry out a school shooting on May 22. He allegedly told police the threats stemmed from bullying of his 14-year-old girlfriend at the junior high.
He was indicted by a Miami County Grand jury and arraigned in county Common Pleas Court.
Judge Christoper Gee set bail at $10,000. A cash bond was requested by Janna Parker, assistant county prosecutor, who said Ingle remains under investigation and other charges are possible from the alleged relationship with the girl.
If Ingle posts bail, conditions of his release will include having no unsupervised conduct with any minor, Gee said.
Ingle's pretrial hearing is scheduled for August 20.
