WHS student cited after halftime stunt

A Waconia High School student was involved in an incident during halftime at the Waconia versus Mound-Westonka homecoming football game on Sept. 27 at Meuwissen Field.

According to Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud, the 16-year-old male ran onto the football field at halftime and “mooned” the home crowd from approximately the 50-yard line. As the student left the field, he was apprehended by two adults and escorted to Carver County deputies on property.

Deputies cited the student for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, and released him to his mother.

Kamerud said behaviors such as this, whether committed by teens or adults, are unacceptable and advised others against such actions.

“We take this kind of behavior as completely inappropriate,” Kamerud said. “It’s not a joke, and it’s not something that we’re going to allow to happen.”

Waconia High School Activities Director Dave Kuehn said district administration was dealing with the situation, but declined to comment further on the incident.
