High school student in camo and gas mask arrested

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California high school student has been arrested for showing up on campus wearing camouflage and a gas mask.

Mountain View and Los Altos police officers were called to the campus Thursday morning after receiving calls reporting the suspicious man on campus.

Officers surrounded the school and began searching for the man. They didn't know at the time that he was a student.

The San Jose Mercury News says 18-year-old Christopher Egerton was arrested for investigation of causing a disturbance on school grounds.

No weapons were found and authorities say there was never a danger to Mountain View High School students.
