You Have Angered Me And This Woman Mr. Kelley.

Bakersfield, Calif. -- West High School staffer accused of bringing firearm onto campus

A West High School employee was arrested on campus earlier this month on suspicion of spousal battery and bringing a gun on school grounds.

Danny Kelley, 40, had an unloaded gun in his car at West High School on Aug. 7, Bakersfield police Detective Greg Terry said. The gun belonged to a relative, but bringing it to school resulted in a felony charge of bringing a gun to a public school.

Kern County Superior Court's Web site lists a felony charge of carrying a loaded gun without registration against Kelley, but Terry said officers reported that the gun was not loaded. Kelley was also charged with misdemeanor spousal battery, according to court records.

Police received a call from Kelley's residence reporting a domestic dispute at 6 a.m. on Aug. 7, Terry said. Officers took him into custody later that morning at the school.

Kelley, a maintenance worker at the school, had made threats to harm his wife or have someone else harm her, Terry said. The domestic dispute involved physical contact, but no one was injured.

Some students were on campus for athletic programs when Kelley was arrested. No threats were made against students or school personnel, Terry said.

Kelley is scheduled to have an arraignment hearing Tuesday at 8:30 a.m.
