Florida Dad Brings AK-47 to Son’s Middle School After Boy Claimed Teacher ‘Slammed’ Him

A Florida father got an unexpected FaceTime call from his son on Monday, prompting an angered reaction that left him facing charges.

Christopher Freeman, 27, got the call from his crying son around 3 p.m. The boy was in class at Bear Lakes Middle School at the time, according to WPTV.

The son told his dad that a teacher had “slammed” him and the call ended when an adult grabbed the child, causing him to drop his phone.

Freeman later got a call from the school’s assistant principal. He told the administrator:

“If this isn’t my son, you’re all dead.”

Around 4 p.m., the father went to the school and was stopped by a resource officer.

Freeman appeared to have the handle of a gun sticking out of his pants, South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. The father yelled:

“I want to see the guy who slammed my son. I’ve got something for him.”

Freeman was taken outside and the school was put into Code Red lockdown. A police search revealed the dad had an AK-47 Mini Draco pistol and a 30-round magazine.

When questioned, the father said that he didn’t know guns weren’t allowed on school property and forgot that he had the weapon on him.

Freeman said he never intended to actually hurt anyone with the AK-47.

He was arrested and charged with disrupting a school function, possession of a firearm on school grounds, and aggravated assault with a weapon.

The father is currently being held on $75,000 bond.

It’s unclear if the school investigated Freeman’s claims that a teacher “slammed” his son.

  • I think we ought to take up a fund for that father…and remind him that gun laws, present in virtually ALL states, prevent the concealed carry of such a weapon.. That said, the school should immediately conduct an investigation into the charges of someone “slamming” the child. Perhaps he was being punished in some way not acceptable, but-perhaps not. The father’s immediate reaction, however, is understandable in my book, but he needs to also learn restraint…just sayin’!

    • True but I think someone needs to check to see what really happened. If the adult did slam the child, why? What was the child doing that the adult felt it necessary to put hands on him. Kids are not always innocent. That being said there are ways to deal with them.

  • 1st question … did this guy have a CCL? 2nd … I find it difficult to believe he forgot he was carrying a “concealed” weapon… AK-47 Mini Draco Pistol which is 17″ long! …. Bull crap ….. he went to threaten or do some damage ….. Only a thug or a criminal “carries” around this type of weapon

    • 1. Why did he need a weapon!
      2. Why didn’t he call the Police or school to verify if there was a incident.
      3. If there was a incident, why didn’t he wait to confront the person who harmed his child!

  • the term slamming could have meant that she or he shamed to kid with words not physical violence. maybe the dad should have found out what was going on before he went all ballistic Amazing when my kids were growing up we listened to the teacher and then the kid now parents don’t want to hear their kids are little brats because the parents never taught them manners or right from wrong and this dad just proved it

  • It is illegal to possess a firearm in a school zone most states share this law. I don’t care what his son said about being slammed that can be cured within the school it’s self. No need for parents to be showing up with a firearm. 75,000.00 is too cheep a bond.
