NC Teen With Guns At School Gets Liberty Scholarship

Posted: Updated:

PRINCETON, N.C. (AP) - A lawyer for Johnston County schools says a teen who said he left two unloaded shotguns in his car at school will be allowed to graduate.

Eighteen-year-old David Cole Withrow was arrested Monday on a felony charge of bringing a weapon onto school grounds after he left the guns in his car at Princeton High School.

School board attorney Jimmy Lawrence said Thursday that Withrow has not been expelled and will be allowed to graduate if he meets the normal graduation requirements.

His family is upset he must finish at an alternative school.

Withrow has received a scholarship offer from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., and from Harding University in Searcy, Ark.

Liberty Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. said Withrow is a victim of a system that he called "overly sensitive."
