Student expelled for bringing pellet gun to school says punishment too harsh

June 19, 2014 by Associated Press

BELLEVILLE, Ill. – A southwestern Illinois teenager expelled from his high school for displaying a pellet gun on the school’s grounds says he disagrees with the punishment.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports 18-year-old Vantezz Carter has been banned from attending Belleville West High School for his senior year.

Carter was seen handling the pellet gun outside the school last month, forcing a brief lockdown of the campus while Carter and other football players were picking up equipment.

The school board expelled him Monday, and Carter calls that “very, very wrong” and extreme even though he admits his actions were inappropriate. He says the gun wasn’t his.

The district’s assistant superintendent, Brian Mentzer, isn’t commenting, saying it’s a disciplinary action.

Carter has been charged with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
