The 39-year-old teacher at Maize High School reportedly made the comments during a soccer game Tuesday night.

The school’s principal, Chris Botts, said in an email sent to school parents Wednesday the comments suggested possible violence toward the school. He says the school was searched and there was no indication the threat was valid.

Sedgwick County jail records show the teacher was booked on charges of criminal threat and was held on $250,000 bond.

Maize school administrators said the teacher has been placed on paid leave until the investigation is complete.

    Our world has been getting angrier, and angrier over the past 10 years. It’s a high school soccer game, or it’s a little kid’s flag football game. People are way over-reacting to games – and for that matter, everything else. Big problem in our society.
