BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Baton Rouge Community College police have arrested an 18-year-old student after they found two knives hidden under the trench coat he was wearing.
According at an arrest affidavit, a campus officer noticed Johann Joseph Looney walking around Tuesday in a long, dark tan coat in warm weather, estimated at 80 degrees.
Police tell The Advocate Looney was stopped when he exited the student center.
With his trench coat off, police say Looney displayed a large knife poking out of the side of his pants. After Looney was handcuffed, officers say they discovered a small knife tucked into his clothing.
Looney, of St. Francisville, was booked with carrying a dangerous weapon by a student on school property.
Online jail records do not list an attorney for Looney.
