Wausau's police chief expected to drop citations in Nerf gun incident

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Wausau's police chief is expected to announce Tuesday afternoon that six high school students who got into a playful battle with Nerf guns will have their disorderly conduct citations dropped.  

West High School principal Jeb Steckbauer has said the youngsters will not face violations of the school's conduct code, either.  

The six were given $240 tickets, after a neighborhood resident thought they were playing with real guns outside her house last week and called 911. Actually, the youngsters were playing a Senior Shootout that's traditional at West High.  

At first, Hardel defended the citations, saying they offered a real life lesson for youngsters to think about the consequences of what they do, before they do it. Some residents, though, believed the punishment exceeded the crime.
