FLORISSANT - A St. Louis County high school student has been arrested after accidentally cutting a friend with a knife at school.
Hazelwood Central High School principal Ceryol Mitchell sent an email to parents Tuesday saying the injured student was treated at the school, then taken to a hospital. The student was not seriously injured.
School officials determined the students were friends playing when one pretended to poke the other with the handle of a knife but instead cut him. Still, the school was on lockdown during the investigation.
