Instagram Post Gets Redding Boy Arrested

A 13-year-old Redding boy and student has been charged with disorderly conduct after posting a photo of two guns on Instagram with the caption, “I think I’m ready to go to school.”

Police investigated and found no guns at the boy’s home. Police are also investigating a second incident where a second student posted a photo of a pistol on Instagram – apparently a photo from the Internet – with the caption: “Colt Anaconda .357. Damn I love Revolvers.”

No charges are expected in that case. The boy charged has been released into the custody of his parents, his name not released because of his age.
