Teenager denies pulling fire alarmJuly 31,2013A Bomoseen teen denied charges that he pulled a fire alarm and created a disturbance at Fair Haven Union High School.
Kyle Stone, 17, pleaded innocent Monday in Rutland criminal court to misdemeanor charges of triggering a false alarm for emergency services and disorderly conduct. The false-alarm charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in prison.
According to an affidavit, police and fire personnel responded to a fire alarm June 5 at the high school. Firefighters determined there was no fire, and a review of video surveillance footage showed Stone pulling the alarm, affidavits state.
Minutes before pulling the alarm, police said, Stone was kicking boxes in a school hallway and when asked by a teacher to stop, he replied with obscene language.
Stone is scheduled to return to court Sept. 4.MORE IN This Just In
