    Details:

    On Wednesday, 09/21/2011, at 7:14 a.m., Hillsborough County School Security responded to an anonymous complaint that a student on a Hillsborough County School bus was in possession of a stun gun. Hillsborough County School security located and stopped the bus on Orient Road across Tampa Bay Technical School, while it was enroute to King High School.

    School Security Officers located the student and removed him from the school bus. They searched the student and found him in possession of a stun gun and 4 small plastic baggies of marijuana. HCSO was notified and responding deputies arrested the student at the scene. The stun gun was about the size of a pack of cigarettes and it did emit an electrical charge when tested. Several students witnessed Thompson with the stun gun, but it is still unclear at this time of his intentions.

    No students were injured and the bus continued on to King High School with the remaining students.
