A man who was arrested at a county high school with a shotgun has pleaded not guilty to charges against him.
Russell Elswick, 52, of Clendenin was indicted on a charge of possessing a deadly weapon on premises of educational facility and making threats of terrorist acts.
He was arrested on Nov. 14 at Herbert Hoover High School and accused of brandishing a shotgun. When approached by a custodian, he said he "had business to take care of."
Circuit Judge Carrie Webster scheduled a June 24 trial date for Elswick. Recently she reduced his bond and allowed him to be released from jail to home confinement in the supervision of his mother.At his arraignment Tuesday, Elswick said he hoped to be employed by an Ohio company as a heavy equipment operator. The judge gave preliminary approval for him to travel.
