Missing marijuana leads to student's arrest

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - An 18-year-old East Valley High School student was arrested early Tuesday after he threatened to stab a 15-year-old girl and her boyfriend over some missing marijuana.

Nicholas Brinton was arrested at the Skills Center, 4141 N. Regal, shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday.

East Valley School Resource Deputy Scott Streltzoff said the incident began over the weekend when a get-together turned ugly after some marijuana belonging to the 15-year-old girl's boyfriend went missing.

Rather than confronting suspected thief Brinton at the party, the boyfriend had the female student confront him at school. 

When she did, Brinton pulled out the knife and said he would stab her.  He later told another student that he would stab the boyfriend as well.

The knife belongs to another EVHS student who loaned it to Brinton during the weekend.  Dept. Streltzoff found both the suspect and the knife at the Skills Center Tuesday.

Brinton was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a single count of Felony Harassment - Threat to Kill.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
