REISTERSTOWN, Md. (WMAR) - Officials with the Baltimore County Police Department are hoping to clear up an issue that happened at the Forbush School.
Baltimore County spokesperson Elise Armacost says officers responded to the school Wednesday after a student at the school told staff members he had a weapon. He quickly clarified, and Armacost said the student told staff members he was joking.
Officers sent to the scene did not find a weapon, but the student was taken into custody and charged with disturbing schools and disorderly conduct.
The Forhush School is a Sheppard Pratt facility that provides services for children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities. Armacost said the student was in a "time-out" room when he made the claim that he had a gun.
