Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police say a student at Blake High School was arrested Wednesday after a gun was found in his gym bag.

Authorities say a student went to an administrator saying he needed help with Mario Sampson and the two were brought together to discuss the issues they had with each other and that's when the gun was found.

Sampson, 16, is being charged with Possession of a Firearm on School Grounds and schools officials say he will not be returning to the school.

This isn't the first time Sampson has been in trouble with police. In January 2010, he was arrested in Tampa after he was caught with a loaded gun and extra hollow-point bullets. He then violated his probation in April 2011 after he was suspended from Franklin Middle School. One of the conditions of his probation was that he attend school regularly and without incident.
