Weapons charges have been dropped for a Wirt County Middle School Principal accused of bringing guns onto school grounds, according to WTAP News.

J.D. Hoover was being investigated on charges stemming from an incident in October, 2007.

In the criminal complaint Hoover told Superintendent Daniel Metz he brought the weapons to school and then left school grounds and returned with one firearm still in his car.

George Cosenza, Hoover's Defense Attorney, says they filed a motion to dismiss the charges, based on a specific statute.

In this case the firearms were in the trunk of Hoover's car, and the ammunition was in the glove box.

Wirt county school Superintendent Daniel Metz says Hoover remains under suspension at this time.
