SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said they arrested a Dorman High School student and football player is accused of having a gun on the school's campus.

Spartanburg County deputies said they were notified earlier in October that Curtis Meadows, 17, unlawfully had a gun in the trunk of his car parked at school.

According to a deputy's report, Meadows had it at school, reportedly trying to sell it to someone. The report said the gun had been reported missing from a Spartanburg home Oct. 12 along with a necklace.

Meadows never threatened anyone with the gun, and did not take into a school building or intend to injure anyone at school with it, deputies said. They did say the gun did not belong to him.

Meadows was arrested Monday night and charged with carrying a weapon on school property and unlawful carrying of a pistol. He has since been released on a $2,000 bond.

Spartanburg County District Six's Director of Public Relations Cynthia Robinson said Meadows would be suspended per district policy, which states that any student charged in this manner would be suspended from school, all activities and school district properties.

FOX Carolina has contacted the school's athletics director to see what Meadows' status on the football team is and is waiting to hear back. According to the team's roster, Meadows is a senior defensive end. The Cavaliers next game is Friday night at Riverside High School in Greer.
