Annapolis High student arrested on weapon charge

A 10th-grade student at Annapolis High was arrested Wednesday after a teacher reported he had a weapon in school.

The teacher said she spotted the boy with an object that appeared to be a weapon, and summoned the school's resource officer, according to school officials.

When the armed police officer tried to question the teen-ager, he fled. The officer caught up with him and arrested him after finding a pellet gun. Police also said a controlled dangerous substance was found on the boy, who was not identified.
