Teen charged with having gun at Knox County football game

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A 17-year-old boy was arrested at last Friday's high school football game at Austin East High School for pointing a loaded gun at a bus full of Fulton High students.

Knoxville police officers were called to the school around 9:40 p.m. for a disturbance around the west side of the building.

The teen was found in possession of a loaded handgun and taken into custody.

Officials say he is a student at Richard Yoakley School.

He has been charged in juvenile court with disorderly conduct and possession of a weapon on school property.

Because the suspect is a juvenile, his name is not being released.
