Yolo County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Woodland Polytechnic Academy student Friday for having a knife and BB gun on campus.
School administrators learned of a rumor Thursday that the 17-year-old boy threatened to hurt another student, deputies say. Administrators searched his backpack Friday and found a 3-inch pocket knife and spring-activated BB gun.
Deputies arrived soon after to take the student into custody.
The teen was booked into Yolo County Juvenile Hall for bringing a weapon onto school grounds.
