PRINCETON, KY - A 25-year-old western Kentucky man has been charged with wanton endangerment after his girlfriend's first-grader son took a loaded handgun to school in his backpack.

Caldwell County school superintendent Carrell Boyd said the man put the.38-caliber revolver in the child's backpack to hide it from friends. Boyd said the child and the boy's mother weren't home at the time.

The Times Leader of Princeton said the man told school officials he forgot about the gun. Boyd said the child discovered it the next day when he was asked to put something inside the bag but didn't say anything until telling two boys on the bus home. The boys' mother called school officials that afternoon, Aug. 15.

Police arrested Aaron W. Larue Monday on a first-degree wanton endangerment charge. The jail said Wednesday he had been released on $25,000 surety bond.
