Authorities in Las Vegas arrested a high school teacher after she threatened to shoot up a concert so she could start a new #MeToo movement aimed at empowering women to become serial killers.

A Bonanza High School teacher, 48, was arrested earlier this month on terrorism charges after she threatened to "poke a lot of holes in a lot of people" at a concert in Las Vegas in text messages she sent to her friend. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

In the series of text messages detailed in her arrest report, (the teacher) had repeatedly romanticized “being remembered” and said she hoped to start another #MeToo movement, “but this time in which women feel empowered enough to become serial killers.”

"A perfect plan with my favorite song surrounded by a bunch of f****** up misfits like I am," the teacher wrote in a text message. "Imagine knowing exactly the moment that you’re going to die. I know exactly that your favorite song will be playing. By your favorite band. It’s just too perfect."

The Metropolitan Police Department decided to arrest the teacher at her home on May 16, three days before the concert, but she wasn't there; she was at school teaching.

"It was at that point we made the request for (Clark County School District police) to immediately take (the teacher) into custody and to be removed from the classroom,” the police report states, according to the Review-Journal.

The teacher reportedly admitted to police that she wrote the text messages and that she was going to attend the concert but claimed that she "often has those types of conversations" with her friend.

The teacher was released on bail and is scheduled to appear in court next month. The school district said that she is going to be "assigned to home."
