BRONSON - John H. Peyregne, 17, of Cedar Key was arrested Nov. 26 for possession of a firearm on school grounds. Cedar Key Chief Bubba Castell contacted School Resource Officer Sean McMullen, who recovered a loaded 30.06 caliber rifle, a .22 caliber rifle and a shotgun. It is a felony to possess a firearm on school grounds.

The police chief previously warned the student not to bring firearms to school, but the young man told the chief he thought that since it was after school hours, it was permitted. He was at a school event at the time - about 5:45 p.m.

If any student brings a firearm to any school in Levy County, said Assistant Superintendent of Schools Jeff Davis, then he or she will be immediately suspended and the potential of expulsion exists. Davis said he is unable to discuss discipline against a particular student.

Another Levy County student was immediately suspended and later expelled this school year for writing a note saying there was a bomb in a Chiefland school.

Any minor charged with a felony can have his or her name published in the newspaper.
