HINESBURG, Vt. (WCAX) - A former Champlain Valley Union High School student is accused of displaying a BB gun in a threatening way during a football game over the weekend.

In a letter sent to parents, Superintendent Rene Sanchez said it happened during the game against St. Johnsbury on Saturday.

After members of the crowd alerted school administrators, police responded.

Sanchez says parents will get more information as soon as they do.

Police tell us it was a 17-year-old and that person will likely face charges, including possession of a dangerous weapon on school property and giving false information to a police officer.

It’s unclear what led up to the incident and if the fan is facing any disciplinary action.
