Sunflower Student Arrested, Brought Stun Gun on Campus

Glendora Police trying to determine prosecution for the felony crime.

A student was arrested by Glendora Police earlier today after allegedly bringing a stun gun onto campus.

The arrest occurred at Sunflower Alternative School, 1505 South Sunflower Avenue, around 11:30 a.m. after school officials detained the 17-year-old student upon learning the weapon was in her possession, police said.

The device was initially described as a Taser gun, but police later identified the weapon as a stun gun. Stun guns require the user to make contact with their target, whereas Tasers can, many times, launch barbs at the target, said Lt. Rob Lamborghini of Glendora Police.

Glendora PD will be contacting the Los Angeles County Probation Department to determine what type of prosecution will be sought against the teen, Lamborghini said.

"It is a felony crime. We work with probation on these kinds of felony cases," Lamborghini said. "She wasn't planning to use it on anybody at school, it was just in her possession."

Further details about the arrest, why she may have felt compelled to carry the weapon, how the school learned of the weapon and whether the student may have been a victim of bullying, are still not known at this time. School officials have not yet returned phone calls.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

The worst part of reading this, is that I just got done reading about Donnelly. He will most likely get nothing compared to this poor confused girl. She will most likely be sent to a juvenile facility for some time.

No she won't, unless she's already on some type of probation. Amazing how you can tear apart Donnelly every chance you get not knowing the man and also know enough about this girl to know she's poor and confused. Not everything is black and white Tyler.

When you are a minor in the criminal justice system, it's black and white. When you are someone of political power, it is different.
