HILO >>  Police say the former student charged with making threats against security staff at the Hawaii island campus of Kamehameha Schools has been arrested again — this time for allegedly threatening police. 

Jeremy Costa allegedly made threats against Kamehameha security via Facebook that included references to the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting rampage. The 18-year-old posted $10,000 in November after his bail was reduced. 

He was charged Thursday with harassment and terroristic threatening in a confrontation with an off-duty police officer. Police say Costa allegedly challenged the officer to a fight, threw a rock at his vehicle and threatened his life. He also allegedly threatened to blow up the police station.

On Tuesday, he was arrested and charged with abuse of a household or family member. He's being held on $50,000 bail.
