WAUSAU -- A school official said police citations for six Wausau West students involved in a Nerf gun fight have been dropped.
Wausau police were criticized by some for ticketing the students after officers received a report from a concerned citizen about the group of young people pointing guns at each other. The caller thought the guns were real. The students were actually playing Senior Shoot Out, a tradition at Wausau West, and using foam Nerf bullets.
Principal Jeb Steckbauer tells Daily Herald Media the students who were originally issued $240 disorderly conduct citations will not be suspended from any school activities.
Steckbauer said without the citations, there's no violation of the school's code
