Student arrested for bringing a weapon onto school grounds

At 7:54 AM on May 21, 2019, a School Resource Officer (SRO) was alerted by East High School Staff that a taser had been brought onto school grounds.  Initial indications are that a student was on an East High school bus this morning and was seen with a taser.  The suspect student got off the bus at East High School, and while walking to a different off-campus location, hid the taser off school grounds. 
An SRO located both the taser and the suspect who is enrolled in an independent educational program.  After being interviewed the suspect was arrested and charges were forwarded to the Department of Juvenile Justice.
There is no indication that anyone was threatened with the taser.
