AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- A student is in trouble after he allegedly brought a sword to South Aiken High School.

Assistant Principal Jason Holt says the student was sitting in his truck in the parking lot with his music turned up loud. When Holt approached the truck, he saw a sword with a 9-inch blade and confiscated it.

The same student had been warned before winter break by the principal not to bring weapons onto school property after shotgun shells were found in his truck.

Holt also found a Mountain Dew bottle inside the truck that smelled like liquor. Another student claimed the bottle was his. The bottle was also confiscated.

Charges in the case are pending.
