A middle school student in Georgia has been suspended after telling his teacher he accidentally brought a small knife to school.

The 13-year-old boy is serving a four-day, in-school suspension because he found a small pocket knife inside this backpack that he got as a Christmas gift.

His aunt bought the military style bag at a yard sale. He was in chess club at Lanier Middle School when he found a one-and-a-half inch knife.

In his disciplinary report, the school acknowledges the boy brought the knife to school by accident and reported it immediately to a teacher.
