A North Carolina high school senior and Eagle Scout may not get to graduate this spring – all because he told school officials the truth.
Cole Withrow, a student at Princeton High School, was expelled from school and charged with a felony Monday after admitting to school officials that he accidentally left a shotgun in his locked car. Withrow had used the gun during a weekend camping trip and did not realize it was still in the car until arriving at school. He promptly called his mother to tell her, which is when his private conversation was overheard by the administration and the trouble began.
“The law is very clear when a person knowingly and willingly brings a weapon onto educational property,” school district spokesperson Tracey Peedin Jones told Fox News. “The situation was turned over to law enforcement immediately.”
