NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut judge has approved accelerated rehabilitation for a former Central Connecticut State University student who triggered a campus lock down last November.
Police say David Kyem who was a student at the school at the time and is the son of a professor there, caused the scare by wearing a ninja Halloween costume on campus. He was also reportedly wearing a sword and carrying a BB gun.
There was a massive police response during the lock down that lasted several hours.
Kyem pleaded not guilty in February to misdemeanor charges, including breach of peace.
The rehabilitation program is for first-time offenders and can result in charges being dismissed after a probation period.
