A Hilton Head Island High School student was charged Wednesday with bringing a knife to school, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
Students told assistant principal Joe Skirtich that the suspect -- a minor the Sheriff's Officer did not identify -- brought electronic cigarettes to school.
Skirtich didn't find any tobacco or cigarettes, but did find a knife with a 3.5-inch blade in the student's backpack, according to the report filed by a school resource officer.
The student said he forgot the knife was in his bag, according to the report.
