A Whitfield County student is in trouble for carrying a stun gun to school.
It happened January 19, 2016 on the school bus as the student was heading to Northwest Whitfield High School to go home. The student was talking about having the stun gun, reached into his bookbag and set the stun gun off.
When he got to Northwest Whitfield High, Assistant Principal Brett Harper and a teacher took the student to the office and questioned him about the weapon.
The student answered that he did have a stun gun and took it out of the bookbag and gave it to Harper.
The student is charged with Carrying a Weapon in School Safety Zones.
