CARO, Mich. (AP) — A sheriff’s deputy has been sentenced to a month in jail for firing his gun inside a Michigan school, sending a bullet through a wall and grazing a teacher, then trying to cover it up.

Adam J. Brown apologized during Monday’s hearing in Bay City, saying he let down the school and law enforcement communities. He earlier pleaded no contest to tampering with evidence.

The Bay City Times reports if he stays out of trouble he’ll avoid a felony on his record.

Police documents show the Bay County deputy fired a pistol in November in Bay City Western High School’s robotics classroom while testing the trigger. The bullet passed into an occupied classroom and hit a teacher in the neck.

Authorities say Brown threw the bullet into the schoolyard.
