A northern Minnesota teacher is charged with bringing a gun on school property.

Scott Eischens was an industrial education teacher at Park Rapids Area High School in Hubbard County. The 38-year-old Eischens faces a felony charge of possessing a gun on school property. School officials found a hunting rifle in the bed of his pickup truck late last year. Eischens says it was his son’s rifle and he didn’t know it was in his truck.

The Bemidji Pioneer says Eischens taught at Park Rapids Area High School for 12 years until he resigned in December. He’s scheduled in Hubbard County District Court on Feb. 28.
