28-year-old Christopher Freeman, of West Palm Beach, Florida, has been arrested after he was accused of bringing a loaded AK-47 to a middle school after receiving a call from his crying son.
Christopher received a FaceTime call from his tearful son during school hours. The boy said his teacher ‘slammed’ him.
While speaking to his son, Freeman said the boy was grabbed by an adult, and he saw his son’s phone fly from his hands.
Police said Freeman then headed to the school to check on his son.
School officials said when Freeman arrived at the campus, he threatened violence because of what happened.
The school was placed on lockdown and Freeman was arrested.
According to WPTV, police said they found a loaded Romarm/Cugir AK-47 Mini Draco pistol.
Freeman has since been charged with possession of a weapon on school property, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and disturbing the peace.
He is currently being held on a $75,000 bond. He has also been ordered to stay away from the school.
The gun may have been overkill, but we don’t blame this dad one bit for sticking up for his child. Has anyone started a GoFundMe for this his bond yet?
