High Schoolers’ Gun Battle Lands Them in Deep Trouble With Police, Administration — But There’s Just One Tiny Problem

WAOW – Newsline 9, Wausau News, Weather, Sports

A gun battle between six high school seniors got the attention of police plenty fast.

It all stared when neighbors reported someone pointing a gun at a car one night earlier in the week.

“They did scare a number of people in the area,” Capt. Ben Bliven of the Wausau Police Department told WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin.

There’s one tiny wrinkle in this incident, though — the students weren’t carrying real guns.

They were Nerf guns — and part of a game trending in popularity called “Nerf Wars.”

“Our dispatch said there were three people with firearms,” Bliven told WAOW. “So we had to respond appropriately. We wanted to do everything as safe as possible for us and for the citizens in the area.”

Police cited the six seniors for disorderly conduct. In addition, their high school, Wausau West, placed some of them on athletic probation.
