DEWEY, Ariz. (AP) - Yavapai County sheriff's deputies say a fifth-grader is in trouble after he was found on a school bus with a BB gun in his backpack.

The sheriff's office says deputies were dispatched to Dewey on Wednesday after getting a call about an 11-year-old student with a handgun. A fellow student had seen what he thought was a gun and told his father, who called authorities.

Deputies caught up with the bus and found a BB gun in the boy's backpack.

The boy told deputies he mistakenly left the gun in his backpack after playing with it over the weekend. He discovered it in his bag while riding the bus.

The sheriff's office says the boy, who attends school in Prescott Valley, has been charged with interference or disruption of an education institution.
