High school student arrested for brandishing a stapler thought to be a gun
RESERVE, La. (AP) - Officials for a Louisiana public school district say a high school was placed on lockdown after a student brandished a stapler mistaken for a gun.
St. John the Baptist Parish Public Schools posted on Facebook that East St. John High had been placed on lockdown Monday morning when a student reported a classmate had a weapon.
The parish sheriff's office searched the campus and found the student who they say had an opened stapler wrapped in a bandanna, not a gun. The lockdown was lifted.
News outlets report the student was arrested and booked into the parish jail on charges of terrorizing.
