A 14-year-old student has been accused of rigging a camera so that it could deliver an electrical shock similar to a Taser.

Police say the boy modified the camera using instructions from the Internet. He brought the device to school but a teacher intervened before he could use it.

School Resource Officer Kyle Strunjo says the makeshift device is potentially capable of giving someone a 600-volt shock.

The boy has been charged with possession of a dangerous weapon on school grounds, attempted assault and breach of peace. He has been released into his parents' custody.
