Bay County, Michigan, sheriff's deputy Adam Brown has been charged with careless discharge of a firearm and tampering with evidence. Brown, a school resource officer, used a force machine in the robotics lab of the school he worked in to test the trigger pull on his personal firearm. He fired a bullet through drywall into a classroom, striking a teacher. Brown did not admit he fired the gun to school staff, causing the school to go into lock down. Staff gave Brown the bullet, but he tossed it into a grassy area covered by leaves.
