ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Police in Virginia said a 10-year-old boy was charged with brandishing a weapon for allegedly bringing a toy gun onto a school bus.

Alexandria police said the boy was riding the school bus home Monday from Douglas MacArthur Elementary School when he showed fellow students the toy gun, which does not fire, "without indicating it was fake," The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Police said the parents of a girl who was on the bus informed the school and officers discovered the orange-tipped toy in the boy's backpack Tuesday morning.

The boy was charged with the misdemeanor count as a juvenile, police said.

The student's name was not released due to his age.
