A 15-year-old boy was arrested Thursday for filing a false report about a weapon being on a Johnson City school bus, according to a police press release.

According to the release, a school bus driver allegedly overheard a conversation about a student having a weapon on the bus, but when officers responded to the bus on John Exum Parkway near Garden Drive and located the boy, he admitted that he was not truthful about what was said on the bus.

The youth was given a misdemeanor citation for filing a false police report and was released to his guardian.

He is scheduled to appear in Juvenile Court on Feb. 22 at 9 a.m.
