Arlington student accused of sending racist texts to classmate

Police in Arlington are investigating after they said a middle-schooler sent racist text messages to a classmate.

Police said the 12-year-old student at Ottoson Middle School sent the messages to another student. At the same school, racist and anti-Semitic graffiti was found inside two bathrooms back in March.

“We are actively working with the administrators at the middle school to discuss and determine the best course of action to take,” said Arlington Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Bodie.
