A 28-year-old man has been arrested after East High students told authorities he pointed a gun at them as they were boarding a school bus after classes ended Wednesday afternoon.
Students told a school resource officer the man was on a bicycle when he pointed the gun at about 3:20 p.m., Lt. Doug Nolte said. An officer spotted a man on a bicycle fitting the description given by students at First and Washington about 10 minutes later.
A search of the man’s backpack turned up an Air Soft gun, Nolte said. The man was taken downtown for further questioning and then booked into jail.
