Cincinnati State student arrested, found with weapon on campus

CAMP WASHINGTON, OH (FOX19) - A student at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly was found with a 6-inch-long "fighting knife" on campus.

Cincinnati State police responded to a 3:40 p.m. report Friday of a person with a knife in the fitness area at the school, 3520 Central Parkway.

An officer stopped a man matching the suspect's description and asked if he had the weapon.

Calvin Way, 47, of Colerain Township took the knife out of his pocket, police wrote in his arrest report. A routine computer check revealed he was wanted for two outstanding arrest warrants for contempt of court.

Way was taken into custody on a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed weapon and booked into the Hamilton County jail.

When he appeared Saturday before a Hamilton County Municipal Court judge, he was ordered to stay out of the school's fitness center.

He may continue attending school if he is enrolled.

The case is scheduled to go to a bench trial Nov. 26.

Until then, Way remains free on his own recognizance.
