A Green man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he brought alcohol and a six-inch knife onto high school property while picking up a relative after classes ended.
Trey Gillespie, 21, is charged with illegal conveyance of a deadly weapon onto a school safety zone and having an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle. The charges are a fifth-degree felony and a fourth-degree misdemeanor.
Gillespie was arrested outside Green High School shortly after 2:45 p.m. Tuesday. Summit County Sheriff’s Inspector Bill Holland said Gillespie was a passenger in the vehicle. When a sheriff’s deputy approached, Gillespie exited the vehicle and was found to have a fixed-blade knife hanging from his belt.
The deputy confiscated the knife and arrested Gillespie. None of the other people in the vehicle were charged, Holland said.
Gillespie was transported to the Summit County Jail.
