A Lakewood High School student was arrested Wednesday after he brought a machete to school.
Daquan Maybell, 18, was concealing the 28-inch machete in a trombone case in the band room.
It was discovered when another student opened the case to use the instrument.
Maybell claimed he brought the machete to school because he was going to do yard work immediately afterwards.
Weapons of any kind are not permitted on school property.
