TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Canyon del Oro High School student was arrested Tuesday morning for pointing a rifle at cars driving near the school, police say.

According to a news release from the Oro Valley Police Department, the teenager pointed what was later determined to be a non-functioning weapon at a woman and passing cars in the area of James D. Kriegh Park, 23 W. Calle Concordia, at about 8 a.m. The park is next to the high school.

The teen was charged with aggravated assault, endangerment, criminal nuisance, threats and intimidation, and disorderly conduct. Police say the suspect was arrested without incident and booked into the Pima County Juvenile Court.

A message to parents from the Amphitheater School District called the rifle "fake" and said this appears to be an isolated incident.

CDO principal Paul DeWeerdt notified parents about the situation via the Amphitheater School Messenger service. In the message, DeWeerdt assured parents that students were safe, and that the student involved was in police custody.
