SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A toy gun on a bus landed a student in trouble with sheriff's deputies.

According to Lt. Mike Murdoch with the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office, they were called around 6:30 a.m. Monday from a bus compound after a student on board a school bus saw what appeared to be a gun and alerted the driver.

Murdoch said the student only had pieces of an Air Soft gun and that the weapon was not fully functional.

The student, who goes to North Bullitt High School, was taken into custody and is being charged with terroristic threatening, menacing, and wanton endangerment.
