A hearing scheduled for Thursday for a former Oregon State University student accused of threatening a shooting at the Corvallis campus has been cancelled.
Christopher Adam Strahan remained in the Benton County Jail. The 22-year-old man is charged with menacing, first-degree disorderly conduct and second-degree disorderly conduct. Strahan allegedly posted tweets on his Twitter account last month threatening to shoot people on campus. That account his since been suspended.
Strahan was on probation at the time for posting similar tweets in February 2017. In that case, Strahan pleaded guilty to second-degree disorderly conduct. A judge sentenced Strahan to 20 days in jail and three years of bench probation.
Benton County Circuit Court Judge David Connell imposed $100,000 security in the new case. The judge also ordered that Strahan be held in jail without bail for violating his probation pending a hearing regarding his release.
Thursday’s hearing had not been rescheduled.
