OKLAHOMA CITY -- Mark this down, using an indelible marker in school in Oklahoma City can get you arrested.

A police report says a 13-year-old student at Roosevelt Middle School was arrested last Friday after a seventh-grade math teacher said the marker bled through paper onto a desk and that the student was seen writing on the desk with the marker.

A city ordinance aimed at graffiti says no one is allowed to possess spray paint or a permanent marker on private property without the permission of the property owner or the person in control of the property.

District spokeswoman Kathleen Kennedy told The Oklahoman that district officials will look into the incident following the winter break that started last Friday.
