Angry father arrested after bringing loaded AK-47 to son's school

Angry father arrested after bringing loaded AK-47 to son's school

Freeman was "visibly upset" and "yelling and screaming", according to the report.

Police said Freeman then headed to the school to check on his son.

Freeman told police that he was upset because his son called him crying earlier in the day because a teacher "slammed him", the affidavit said.

After being stopped, Freeman allegedly said, "I want to see the guy who slammed my son". Freeman, who landed in a wheelchair, supposedly told school labourers that they would all be dead on the off chance that they didn't give him a chance to talk with his child. As the father attempted to get more information from the boy, Freeman claims an adult aggressively pulled his son. "I've got something for him", according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Freeman has since been charged with possession of a weapon on school property, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill and disturbing the peace.


"I want to thank the quick action of our own School Police, in cooperation with the West Palm Beach Police Department, for their cooperation in removing this individual from our campus", Howell said, according to the TV station. "Someone then hung up the phone", Freeman said, according to the police report. He is being held on a $75,000 bond.

The dad was searched anyway by backup police officers, and that's when an a AK-47 Mini Draco pistol was discovered stuffed in his trousers.

Court records said Freeman faces previous drug and weapons charges - and is set to be tried on those counts in April - after Palm Beach deputies pulled him over in 2018 and he said he was carrying guns in his auto, the Post reports.

He said he arrived at the school not realizing he was carrying the gun, which he had bought from a friend a year ago and regularly carried for protection.

The father's attorney said he will try to get the charges dropped. "We're interested in seeing if there is any security video from school because there were allegations about his child being hit". Freeman is set to appear in court on April 4, and will reportedly plead not guilty for any crime.
