GAMBRILLS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland high school student has been charged with harassing a classmate who complained online about being bullied.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that the Arundel High School student was charged as a juvenile last week and released to his family.

Police have not released the student's name or discussed the investigation.

The harassment allegations came to police attention after a classmate, who identified herself only as "Sarah," posted an online essay in which she described being bullied and receiving death threats.

The student posted the 500-word essay on the website Reddit and said school administrators had not done enough to stop the harassment.

Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy says police did a two-day investigation, but declined to comment further.

The school says it's dealt with the harassment.
