A teacher was arrested for allegedly violating the Gun Free School Zone Act on Monday at Menominee Indian High School, according to Menominee Indian School District Superintendent Wendell Waukau.

The teacher had a firearm inside his vehicle which was parked in the back of the school, Waukau said.

"We do not have any information at this time that would lead us to believe the teacher had any bad intent or motive in having the handgun in his vehicle," Waukau said. "The teacher has a valid concealed carry permit and the firearm was unloaded."

The incident is under investigation by Menominee County police and the teacher has been placed on administrative leave.

Because of the active investigation, Waukau said it would be inappropriate for him to comment further.

According to online court records, Jarrod Kuehn, 34, of Neenah, has been charged with a felony for possession of a firearm on school grounds.
