A 17-year-old A&M Consolidated High School student took a trip to jail Friday after administrators say he brought a sword to school.
Police say John Augustus "Gus" Patterson was confronted in the school parking lot because he did not have permission to be out of class.
Administrators say it wasn't the first time he was caught in the lot, so he and his car were searched.
Police say an attack sword with a 15-inch blade and attached arm brace was in the trunk, along with shotgun shells and two video cases with marijuana traces.
Administrators also say Patterson had a pocket knife on him.
The teen was arrested for having a prohibited weapon on campus and possessing marijuana.
He will also face disciplinary measures by the district.
