WEST OLIVE, (Mich.) — The West Ottawa High School student arrested with a gun at school offered this response to causing so much fear among his classmates:
"My bad," Davian Weston told 24 Hour News 8 on Friday as he walked out of the Ottawa County Jail.
Weston, 17, of Holland, hugged his mom as he left the jail, released on bond, with a bag of Fritos.
He'd been arraigned earlier in the day on two felonies — receiving and concealing a stolen handgun and carrying a concealed weapon — and a misdemeanor charge of carrying a gun on school property.
If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
Ottawa County deputies say at least one other student reported seeing Weston with a gun outside the high school Thursday morning. They believe he had the weapon inside the school earlier in the day.
The report led to a lockdown and anxious moments.
"He does feel bad, but he's not allowed to comment. He doesn't understand all this," his mother, Stacy Puente, said.
