A Broome-Tioga BOCES student has been arrested for Criminal Possession of a Weapon after showing off what appeared to be a handgun.

On Thursday, a witness reported seeing the student of the 435 Glenwood Rd. BOCES, Michael King, showing off what looked like a handgun in the bathroom. King later tucked the gun into the waistband of his pants before leaving the bathroom. King was later confronted by authorities and disarmed without incident.

Upon inspection of the gun was revealed to be a black model 1911 style hand gun, it was revealed that it was a BB gun with no orange tip. The BB gun was nearly an exact replica of the real firearm.

Michael was arrested for Criminal Possessions of a Weapon and released to his mother on an appearance ticket for a later court date.
