ROCKWELL, NC (AP) -- A Rowan County man faces gun charges after police say he brought a gun to school to defend his teen daughter. WSOC-TV reported that Jimmy Hollar took the rifle to East Rowan High School after seeing his daughter's boyfriend touch the 17-year-old's bottom as he dropped her off at school. Hollar says he thought the action was inappropriate, so he drove to his home in Rockwell, grabbed his .22-caliber rifle and returned to campus. Hollar says his only intention was to point out to the boy that he was being disrespectful. He says he didn't realize it was a violation to bring a weapon to school until police confiscated the rifle. Hollar is charged with a misdemeanor and is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 9.
