FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky prosecutor says a gun
being carried by a man making threats at Kentucky State University
jammed as the man made his way through the university student
Franklin County Attorney Rick Sparks says otherwise, "something
really bad could have happened" during the episode March 2.
Charged in the case is 23-year-old Christopher Sims of
Louisville. The State Journal reports he appeared Thursday for a
pretrial hearing in Franklin County District Court. He's charged
with disorderly conduct, first-degree promoting contraband,
carrying a concealed deadly weapon and unlawfully possessing a
weapon on school property.
Sims is being held on $50,000 bond. Defense lawyer Clay Wilkey
asked for a bond reduction, but Judge Kathy Mangeot denied the
request and sent the case to a grand jury.
Sims was a student at Kentucky State, but Wilkey says his client
has been expelled.
