A Rockdale County man is in jail after Henry County police say his Facebook posts threatened to cause harm to people attending the Henry County Fair, possibly involving a firearm.

Authorities arrested Corbyn Scott Christian, charging him with terrorist threats and acts. That charge is a felony and the suspect remains in the Henry County Jail.

According to police, a concerned citizen saw the posting by Christian and felt uneasy. That citizen took a screen shot of the posting and then sent it to police. Investigators looked into the matter and later arrested Christian after they deemed the threat credible.

Authorities said this is a good example of why citizens should report anything suspicious or threatening that they see posted online. Police said if you're concerned or worried about something posted on social media, never hesitate to pass along the information to police.
