HENRICO, Va. (AP) -- A Henrico County man has been fined $100 for failing to secure a loaded handgun that his grandson took to school.

Media outlets report that 78-year-old Harvey Lee Pleasant pleaded guilty Thursday in Henrico County General District Court to allowing children access to a firearm, a misdemeanor.

Police say the 7-year-old Ratcliffe Elementary School student brandished the gun on a school bus on Feb. 4 and made a threatening statement. No one was injured.
