The Columbia County Sheriff's Office was called to two high schools in separate incidents Tuesday, both of which resulted in students being arrested.
Sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris said police went to Greenbrier High School at about 10:15 a.m. after about 8 grams of marijuana was found on a 16-year-old student. The student was charged with possession of marijuana, he said.
In another case, police went to Lakeside High School at about 12:30 p.m. after authorities said a 16-year-old boy fondled a female student. Morris said the student was charged with sexual battery, a misdemeanor.
