Hernando teen. 14, arrested, accused of bringing knife to school

BROOKSVILLE — A Hernando County teen was arrested Friday after he tried to sell a Bowie knife to another student, according to an arrest report.

The 14-year-old, who is not being identified because he is a minor, brought the knife with a nearly 8-inch blade to Hernando High School, according to a Hernando County Sheriff's Office report.

While in the cafeteria, the teen took the knife, which was in a sheath inside a box, out of his book bag and showed it to a student. He then took the knife out of its sheath, exposing the blade, the report states.

The teen at first denied to a deputy that he had a knife but later showed the deputy where he had left the knife, under a tree on campus.

The teen was arrested on a charge of possession of a weapon on school property.
