G’dad: Yazoo County High g’daughter reacted to bullying

PICKENS, Miss. — The grandfather of a 14-year-old girl arrested and accused of waving a gun on a crowded Yazoo County, Miss., school bus said Thursday she is not getting a fair deal in news coverage of the event.

“It ain’t been told right,” said Mac Gypson, who lives across the highway from his granddaughter just across the Yazoo County line. “They want to look for the worst part and don’t want to know anything else.”

A brief standoff ended Tuesday morning when Kaleb Eulls, an 18-year-old Yazoo County High School football standout, tackled the girl, wrestling away the gun, officials said. She was taken to the county youth detention center and remains in custody while authorities attempt to determine whether she should be tried as an adult, Yazoo County Sheriff Tommy Vaughan said.

Gypson said his granddaughter, who has not been named because she is a juvenile, had been the victim of teasing and bullying since she started attending Yazoo County High School last month. Gypson described his granddaughter as a “slow” learner, and he said he was unaware of her having any trouble before transferring to the school. Full story.
