DAVENPORT, Iowa — A 41-year-old Davenport man was arrested and charged with carrying weapons on school grounds following an incident the evening of Thursday, Sept. 28 on the Davenport West High School campus.

According to police reports, White – who has a valid concealed carry permit issued in Scott County – was involved in a “verbal altercation” with another individual when he removed his shirt, revealing a silver handgun in his waistband.
