CHARLOTTE, N.C.-- A Charlotte high school student may not be able to walk in graduation after an arrest on Monday. 

Police arrested Armano Washington, 18, a senior at Garinger High School, after he brought a 42-inch Samurai sword to school that he had hidden in his pants. 

Investigators say Washington also had hidden a small knife in the handle of the sword.

He was allegedly going to sell the weapons at school.
