Six Wasau West High School seniors were ticketed for disorderly conduct after panicked residents called the cops because of a Nerf gun battle.
The police responded to the call after 6 seniors took to the neighborhood streets to shoot each other with the brightly colored plastic guns.
Residents apparently unable to distinguish between mutli-colored Nerf guns and real guns, the call came in that “there were three people with firearms, so we had to respond appropriately,” said Captain Ben Bliven. He continued saying that “they thought that there were actually firearms being drawn and pointed at other people, which is very concerning for citizens in the community.”
Some of the students have been placed on academic probation; however, the school district says no one will be suspended.
