CRESTVIEW HIGH STUDENT ARRESTED ON GUN CHARGES
The Crestview High School student arrested on gun charges Tuesday by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is identified as 17-year old Jonathan Blayne Boals of 1005 Martin Luther King Ave, Apt. 3-B.
Boals is charged with possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm on school grounds, possession of a firearm by an adjudicated delinquent, and disruption of a school function.
A School Resource Officer says Boals had not made any threats. Boals told investigators he had no intentions of harming anyone. He says he had the weapon with him because he’d gotten it Monday evening and then spent the night away from home.
Boals was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice facility in Crestview.
The investigation is continuing.
