FAIRFIELD - Police say a former Fairfield Prep student was arrested Monday for trespassing at the school and threatening a counselor.

Investigators say John Phrakousonh, 28, entered a school cafeteria and began asking for students' neck ties. An administrator then threw him out of the building.

Phrakousonh returned later to visit a counselor. Police say during the meeting, he reached into his waistband and simulated pulling out a gun. He instead pulled out his cell phone and said, "Bang."

Phrakousonh is a 1999 graduate of the school.
