Officials say a Moultrie student could be charged with a felony after he allegedly brought a knife to school.

19-year-old William Pitts was arrested for allegedly bringing a pocket knife to the Vereen School Monday (10/25) morning.

Moultrie Police say they were called to the school where Pitts was allegedly opening and closing the knife while on school grounds.

Officers say they took the knife from Pitts and a search of Pitts' backpack found no further weapons.

Officers say the student didn't threaten himself or anyone else with the knife.

Pitts will be held in Colquitt County jail until arraignment.

    I can remember going to school with my own pocketknife. Hell most everybody had one. Most of the time it was used(at school)for wittling or just throwing at a tree. The boys would have competions in throwing. Sometime us girls joined in. NOW adays they are just used to cut SOMEBODY UP. SHAME. It seems like this boys was just doing what we did. also, maybe he was just dared to bring it. I truly hope that was all.

    Welcome to America - the Nanny State where you rights are slowly disappearing and the police get involved in everything - this is what it looks like. Hope we all enjoy it.
