Smoking Dope And Carrying Guns Not Allowed In School
Everybody knows that smoking ain't allowed in school - the final stanza of Brownsville Stations (and Motley Crue's redo) Smokin' in The Boys Room. The song glorifies the former coming of age activity of smoking in the school bathroom during class changes.
Perhaps we should air that song a little more often to re-send the message to some of today's high school generation.
Tuesday afternoon, Calcasieu Parish Sheriffs Deputies responded to a call at LaGrange High School about a student with a gun in his backpack. Around 12:30pm, officers observed a disturbance during lunch and a group of students gathered in a certain area.
As the officers approached the crowd, the students immediately began to disperse, and a 17-year-old male walked past one officer smelling like he'd just left Colorado. A deputy detained the student, who then tried to pass off his backpack to someone else. The deputy saw a handgun in an open section of the pack.
Marijuana and a loaded gun both were found in the pack.
The student got booked into Juvi, charged with illegal possession of a firearm on a school campus, possession of marijuana, possession of CDS in a drug-free zone, illegal possession of a firearm by a juvenile, and possession of a firearm in the presence of narcotics.
Deputy Dewayne Simmons made the collar, detective Brittany Jones is the lead investigator on the case.
So remember kids, leave your guns at home and smokin' ain't allowed in school.
