VA Teacher Allegedly Fires Gun At Students


    A teacher was arrested in Virginia, accused of pointing a gun at his students and firing blanks.

    FOX News Radio's Ron Flatter reports:

    Audio clip:

    Sixty-year-old Manuael Dillow teaches welding at a vocational school in Abingdon, Virginia.

    Sheriff's Deputies say Dillow tried to get the attention of twelve students, lined them up near a garage door in the metal shop. Then he allegedly aimed a gun at them, and fired it as many as ten times.

    It turns out the real-looking gun only fires blanks. But Dillow has been charged with 12 felonies.

    (Newman) "The charge is a result of inciting fear, I guess, if you would, into the students."

    Washington Country Sheriff Fred Newman.

    Dillow is out on bond waiting for a court hearing next month. Each charge carries a maximum six years in prison and a $2,500 fine.
