BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies have arrested a McKinley High School student for having a gun and drugs on campus.
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks tells The Advocate the 10th-grader was arrested Monday.
Hicks says a deputy found a loaded handgun and a bag of marijuana in the student's pocket after another student told school administrators about the weapon.
She says the 17-year-old was booked into Parish Prison on one count each of possession of marijuana and illegally carrying a weapon on school property.
