OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police arrested a teen caught using a permanent marker at Roosevelt Middle School.

According to the police report, on Friday, Dec. 17, the 13-year-old used the marker to write on a piece of paper. The ink bled through the paper and stained the desk. 

Teacher Delynn Woodside also said she saw the student writing on the desk.  She told police although she'd seen the student using the marker earlier, when she asked him to give it to her, he tried to hide it.

Woodside called police to report the incident and the boy was arrested. He was taken to the Community Intervention Center. He faces charges of possession of a permanent marker on private property.

According to an Oklahoma City ordinance, possession of an aerosol spray paint container or a broad-tipped indelible marker on private property is prohibited without consent of the property owner.
