MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - A teenager is in trouble after pulling a replica AK-47 airsoft rifle out of his SUV to show his buddies at Minnesota State University in Mankato.
The 17-year-old from Waseca has been cited for disorderly conduct and for violating a city ordinance.
Police say a security officer saw a group of people gathered early Thursday by the SUV, 1 of whom was holding what appeared to be an assault rifle. They also observed him appear to fire.
Police say officers responded with guns drawn, ordered everyone to the ground and handcuffed them. They found the teen had five Airsoft replica guns that fire plastic airsoft pellets. The youth and the airsoft replicas were handed over to his mother.
