NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A 17-year-old student was arrested Monday for having a loaded gun in his car at Cane Ridge High School.

Police said the 9th grader entered the building smelling of marijuana, and was pulled out of class by an assistant principal. Both the student and his car were searched, and the loaded .22 caliber semi-automatic pistol was found in a pocket behind the driver's seat.

The student claimed he did not know the gun was in the vehicle.

Having a gun at a school is a zero tolerance offense, but it was not immediately clear if the student was expelled.
