Montgomery prep player charged in threats

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A Montgomery high school basketball player has been arrested for allegedly making threatening remarks and flashing a gun at opposing players and coaches at a restaurant after a game.

Montgomery Police Maj. Huey Thornton said 18-year-old Walter Means of Carver High was charged with disorderly conduct following the altercation on Monday.

Police reports say Means and a teammate followed the Selma team bus to the restaurant after Carver lost its first game, 52-51. The other player was not charged.

Thornton said Means, a junior, lifted his shirt to show a gun in his waistband. Carver coach James "J.J." Jackson said Means has been dismissed from the team.
