WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- A group of students arrested last week over a game of Nerf Wars will be getting community service instead of citations.
Police chief Jeff Hardel says the decision to drop citations in the case was contingent on the students taking part in a educational video about the consequences in taking part in the game.
At a press conference today, the 911 audio from the incident was played back. In the clip, the caller can be heard reporting several teenagers getting out of cars with weapons after blocking another car in. He told police the situation was dangerous and can be heard telling his wife not to be seen.
Hardel says they made a full response to the scene based on that information, and performed a full stop and search on all of the people involved.
We'll have more updates later this afternoon.
