Gun-Carrying Vice Principal Released, No Laws Broken

A Bakersfield junior high school principal was arrested by police for taking a gun on to the campus of his school. According to police, Kent Williams, 51, was arrested and later released on Thursday afternoon. Police say that according to Williams’ concealed weapon permit, by law he was allowed to carry the gun on the school’s campus. He was released by authorities because no laws were broken.

Police were contacted by the school district and when an officer approached Williams, he indicated that the weapon was in his backpack and was completely cooperative during his arrest. Panama-Buena Vista Union School District has placed Williams on administrative leave. The district’s Assistant Superintendent Gerrie Kincaid told local reporters that Williams was still in violation of the district’s policy by not getting permission to carry a concealed weapon on campus.
