A Wichita teacher has been suspended after he was arrested for carrying a gun on school grounds.
Arrest records show Daniel Nagel, 31, was arrested Monday.
The incident happened at White Elementary School. A USD 259 spokesperson said the gun was not loaded and there was never any threat to anyone at the school.
Nagel faces a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed firearm. A first time penalty for that offense would be a fine of $50.
A police spokesman said today that even if Nagel had a permit to carry a concealed firearm, it's still illegal to carry the gun into a school building.
