A man who was arrested last year for brandishing a gun on school property pleaded no contest Monday morning in Kanawha County Circuit Court.
Russell E. Elswick, 52, of Clendenin was charged with possessing a gun on school property and making terroristic threats after an incident at Herbert Hoover High School in November 2012.
Two Kanawha County deputies received minor injuries while arresting Elswick, but no other injuries were reported during the incident.
Terrorism charges against him were dropped Monday. Elwick will face two to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced.
