***FACEBOOK POST Investigation***

Upon interviewing Hicks, it was determined that the post he made on Facebook was not intended to be a threat towards any school in this county or anywhere. Hicks requested the assistance of the investigator to remove the post and issue a statement of apology on his personal Facebook page. Hicks remains in ACSO Custody for charges not related to anything on Facebook and is awaiting to complete the booking process.

We are grateful for the notifications that concerned citizens sent to the Sheriff's Office as well as the on going dicussions on school safety. Thank you everyone for being proactive and for your continued support.

And you believe him?

Thank you for responding to the issue so quickly.

Wow

Well, they ARE investigators! So... 😂

Thank you for the update!

I'm grateful you shook down a guy who clearly made no illegal threat on Facebook. You can read it and see he did nothing illegal, but you still question him? Police State

I personally took it like he would "school someone" not an actual school. But I'm glad to see ACSO is proactive. Now if they would get MVHS under control that would be great!!!!!

Whomever started the school rumor that it was Midland Valley, and posted his post saying "Get your kids" as a Mustang mom that was not cool! You acted without knowledge and clearly took a post out of context causing alot of parents to worry! Shame on you lady!

I do NOT think that he intended it at MVHS but I would certainly like to know WHO his threats were for! They were creepy at best! Who is this Joker...no pun intended.

Megan Elizabeth

Thank you Facebook and Facebook viewers for reporting this so our law enforcement can take action BEFORE anyone is ever in danger.

I don't understand? he never threatened a school? he said school as in he's gonna teach a lesson. how do you know he's not talking about cursing at people or just yelling at people in this veiled threat? This is just dumb and blown out of proportion I believe.

I’m beyond thankful for the work of Aiken County deputies every day, but even more so today, as this sounds like a threat to our children! Thank you for all that you do.

Good job Aiken County thanks for all you do

Good job!!! Quick Response!!!

Keep him, never let him out. Its about time

People try to break into jail every day

Aiken County Sheriff's Office please be mindful of some of comments made about this post. It will reveal others with similar mindsets. As a parent, I appreciate your response. I worry about those that think it is ok to threaten our children in anyway shape, form, or fashion. This serious, and should not be taken lightly.🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

OMG!!!!! Thank goodness he is in custody already!! So scary!
