Man arrested for discharging gun at middle school


The negligent discharge of a firearm at a Douglas County middle school flag football game led to the arrest of one man on Oct. 29. 

Douglas County law enforcement responded to a shots fired call around 3:45 Oct. 29 at Crestview Middle School, according to a police news release. Police determined that David Drummond, 65, of Aurora, attended the flag football game with a concealed handgun, which fell out of Drummond’s pants and discharged as Drummond picked it up.

The release says there were no injuries as a result of the discharge. 

Drummond was taken to the Douglas County Jail on charges of prohibited use of a weapon, unlawful carrying of a weapon on school property, reckless endangerment, and disorderly conduct. Unlawful carrying of a weapon on school property is a felony offense.

Drummond’s concealed carry licenses for Arapahoe County and Utah were also confiscated by police.

Drummond posted $1,250 cash or surety bond on Oct. 29. He is scheduled to be in court on Dec. 1.
