Student gets more time for musket
A high school senior that brought his musket to school after attending a reenactment of the civil war has been suspended for 21 days. Originally, Josh Phelps was suspended for five days, but the school board in Pine Bush, New York, tacked on 16 more days to the suspension.
Phelps reportedly joined the reenactment club after an advertisement at his school urged students to get involved. He had his musket and uniform in his car in the parking lot when a school security guard saw it. He reported it and Phelps was arrested for weapons possession and bringing the musket on school grounds. He goes to court Monday to answer the charges.
