Juvenile Arrested in Mt. Pleasant for Gun Possession, Fighting Police Officers at MPHS

A juvenile has been arrested in Mt. Pleasant after he allegedly brought a gun to Mt. Pleasant High School’s football game Friday night, and fought police officers.

The department says they were contacted by a Mt. Pleasant school administrator who said a spectator may have a gun with them to the game.

Youth Services Unit officers asked the 17-year-old to step outside the stadium.

Once he did, he started to fight the officers, and was found with a gun.

The juvenile is in custody, and he is not a student of Mt. Pleasant Public Schools.
