A 16-year-old Easton-Arcola student was arrested was arrested Wednesday by sheriff’s deputies for carrying a firearm on campus, according to Erica Stuart, sheriff’s spokeswoman.

The deputy detectives entered a classroom a complaint about the gun on campus, and when they arrested the boy, a gun fell on the foot of one of the officers.

The gun wasn’t loaded.
