Scott school board member arrested

A Scott County School Board member has been arrested on charges of third-degree terroristic threatening and intimidating a participant in the legal process, officials say.

Luther Mason, 81, of Georgetown, bonded out of the Scott County jail Tuesday, a day after his arrest. Kentucky State Police have released few details concerning Mason's arrest.

Trooper Ronald Turley said state police served a warrant Monday night after the complainant, a female, alleged that Mason threatened her while they were involved in a legal process.

But Mason said in a telephone interview with the Herald-Leader Tuesday afternoon that he should not have been arrested because he was actually the person being threatened by someone renting a home from him.

He declined to discuss the case in more detail.

Mason is scheduled to appear in court 10:30 a.m. Dec. 4.
