NORCROSS -- A Norcross High School student was jailed on felony charges this week for allegedly bringing a knife on campus.
Duluth resident Donald Heningburg, 17, was booked at the Gwinnett County Jail Thursday on charges of weapons possession on school property.
Trouble for Heningburg began about 1:30 p.m. Dec. 8, when school officials suspected him of being under the influence of marijuana. When questioned, the 11th-grader became "hostile, belligerent and refused to submit to a search," according to a Gwinnett School Police report.
When pressed further, Heningburg surrendered a knife from his pocket and told administrators it was all he had on him. Administrators called for police, but Heningburg fled school grounds before they arrived, the report states.
School police secured a warrant for Heningburg's arrest the following day, then forwarded it to the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department for service.
The weapon is described in the report as a "silver or aluminum tactical knife."
Heningburg remained jailed without bond Friday.
