A West Palm Beach teen was arrested Friday night after she reportedly fired a stun gun while at the Park Vista High School football game, school police records show.

A teacher told a school officer during the preseason game against Pahokee High School that he'd seen a girl with bright pink hair set off a stun gun.

The teacher pointed to 18-year-old Christine Bernard, identifying her as the one who'd fired that gun.

When authorities approached Bernard in the stands at the suburban Boynton Beach school, she handed over the stun gun. But when an officer asked for her name, she lied.

She did so, she said, because she was afraid of getting into trouble.

Bernard faces weapon offense and fraud charges. She was booked early Saturday into the Palm Beach County Jail and released later that day on a $3,000 surety bond.

It is unclear where Bernard reportedly fired the gun or whether anyone was struck.

Bernard does not appear to have an adult criminal record in Palm Beach County.
