A Stonington High School student is facing several charges after he brought a knife to school this morning.
According to Stonington Police Captain Jerry Desmond, at around 7:40 a.m. two students at Stonington High School got into an argument. One of the students, a 16-year-old male, displayed a knife he had in the coat. Desmond said the student never took the knife out of the coat, but that several students that were in the area at the time reported seeing the knife to school administration officials. The school administration detained the student and called the police.
The 16-year-old was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds, threatening, breach of peace, carrying a dangerous weapon, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
