MIRAMAR, Fla. (WSVN) -- A South Florida teen has walked out of jail after allegedly bringing a gun to school.

The student at Miramar High School, 19-year-old Anthony Barrow, was arrested Monday afternoon after being accused of bringing an AR-15 rifle on school property.

He appeared in court Tuesday morning where Broward Court Judge John Hurley told him, "Sandy Hook was an AR-15, if I recall correctly. I mean Columbine, this is just really outside of the parameters of acceptable behavior."

Barrow posted $1,000 bond and was fitted with an ankle monitoring bracelet Wednesday morning before he was released from jail.

Monday when officials searched Barrow's Ford Expedition, the rifle was discovered with two loaded magazines with more than 60 rounds. It still remains unknown why he had the gun and ammunition.

Barrow is a star football player at Miramar High School and has been recruited by many colleges for his talents on the football field, as well as his grades. "He's a good athlete. He's a good person, overall good student," said peer Shelby Britus.

Students said Barrow was intelligent and had a bright future but were unsure as to why he would bring the loaded rifle to school. "It was like a threat. Like the other kid, a skinnier kid, threatened him and then he was like, 'Don't try me, I'll shoot you," one student said.

Another student said that Barrow never took the rifle outside of his vehicle. Barrow also said in court Tuesday that the rifle was covered in the back seat.

Some students, however, believe guns should not be on school grounds under no circumstances. "Guns at school, I don't believe anyone should take it to that kind of standard bringing a weapon to school," said Nicholas Brown. "If you're having a problem, that's what the administration is for."

Other students have said that the rifle may belong to Barrow's father.

Barrow is not allowed in any classroom without a judge's approval. He has been suspended for 10 days and the principal at Miramar High has recommended his expulsion.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.
