Falls High Commotion Results In Teen Arrest

A combination of problems led Cuyahoga Falls High School to keep students in classes for about an hour earlier this morning, but one of those problems was not an actual gun.

Cuyahoga Falls superintendent Dr. Todd Nichols says despite what was rumored on social media, it wasn't a real gun spotted among other situations at Cuyahoga Falls High School.

Cuyahoga Falls police say they were called to the high school for a "disorderly student" at just before 9:30 AM, but learned from the school of the 16 year-old student with a weapon "believed to be a gun".

Police say that device found in a backpack turned out to be pruning shears wrapped in electrical tape, with a Swiss army knife taped to the outside.

Dr. Nichols sent out a call to parents this afternoon, saying students were kept in their classes for a while, but that no one was hurt, or in danger.

Police say the student faces felony charges of Illegal Possession of a Weapon in a School, and misdemeanor Inducing Panic, and was taken to the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.

A Cuyahoga Falls man shot in a dispute at a home near Woodridge High School two weeks ago is now facing his own charges.

The Beacon Journal reports that Fred Fleischer faces child endangering and drug-related charges.

38 year-old Jason Beavers of Ravenna was arrested earlier for shooting and wounding Fleischer, in an apparent dispute over marijuana growing equipment.

Police looking into the shooting found evidence of a grow operation at the house on Quick Road.

They say Beavers used to live there, but didn't remove the growing equipment.
