OKMULGEE, Oklahoma - A security guard at Okmulgee High School was arrested Thursday for carrying a weapon even though he's a convicted felon.

Austin Joe Domebo, 26, has a substantial criminal history. According to Department of Corrections records, he was convicted of receiving stolen property, larceny of a motor vehicle and pointing a firearm in 2003.

The school says they contract out the hiring of the security guards and they did not know Domebo was a convicted felon.
