Ac­cord­ing to Mitchell, the stu­dent was taken into cus­tody, pro­cessed as a ju­ve­nile of­fender and then re­leased to his mother.

New­ton County School Sys­tem’s spokesper­son Sherri Viniard con­firmed the stu­dent did carry the toy on the bus and said the ac­tion vi­o­lates the school sys­tem’s code of con­duct.

“…Stu­dent safety is our pri­mary con­cern and al­though this was a toy gun, it is still a very se­ri­ous of­fense and it is a vi­o­la­tion of school rules. We will not tol­er­ate weapons of any kind on school prop­erty,” Viniard said.

As a re­sult of this in­ci­dent, the stu­dent could face dis­ci­plinary ac­tion from the school.
