WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)  Wausau police issued six disorderly conduct citations to Wausau-West High School students who took part in a nerf-gun fight. On Tuesday night a neighbor on Stevens Street called 911, saying someone pointed a gun at her car. It was not clear from the initial call to police if it was a nerf gun or a real gun. Police responded by sending several squad cars to the area.

Police quickly determined a group of Wausau-West seniors were playing Nerf Wars in the area.

The school sent a letter home to parents earlier in the week. It said parts of the Nerf Wars game could be considered illegal -- like trespassing on private property, causing property damage, and a rule where students remove clothing to avoid being shot.

Wausau West says the six students who were cited will be put on athletic probation, but they will not be suspended.
