DELTONA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Florida high school student was arrested after telling a teacher he had a gun to get her attention.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 18-year-old Deltona High School student Christopher Jones was charged Monday with making a false report of a bomb or explosion on public property.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office says Jones claimed to have a gun in his backpack but then immediately said he was kidding. When the teacher demanded he hand over his bag, he left the classroom. A school resource officer responded and found the student. No gun was found in the backpack.
Jones was free on $1,000 bail.
