Fisherman's Son Suspended for Fishing Knife Found in Dad's Car on HS Campus

On February 20th, Clarksville, Tennessee, senior David Duren-Sanner drove his father’s car to school and was suspended after officials found a fishing knife inside the vehicle.

Duren-Sanner’s dad “is a commercial fisherman on the West Coast and had apparently left a fishing knife in the car.”

According to Nashville’s NewsChannel5, Duren-Sanner told officials he had no idea the knife was in the car. Still, “school officials suspended him for 10 days … and then he was reprimanded to attend 90 days at an alternative school.”

He has appealed the punishment. If upheld, Duren-Sanner “will not be able to attend prom, his JROTC ball or walk at graduation.”

Duren-Sanner’s grandmother said the vice principal explained the punishment by saying, “Unfortunately, that’s the way it is now: Guilty until proven innocent.”
