  CANTON, Ga. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies north of Atlanta say a man who was armed with a BB gun and a knife outside a school ran from them because he knew he was carrying weapons in a school zone.

 

      Cherokee County sheriff's officials say 31-year-old Todd Grigg of Woodstock was standing on school property outside the Cherokee Charter Academy in Canton Wednesday morning carrying a BB gun that looked like a semi-automatic handgun.

 

      Grigg has been charged with four counts of possession of a weapon on school grounds, carrying a concealed knife and obstruction of a police officer.

 

      It wasn't immediately clear whether he has an attorney and the man is being held without bond in the Cherokee County jail.
