BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A first-grader was caught with a butter knife at an Alabama school, and officials say another first-grader encouraged her to bring it.

Birmingham City Schools spokeswoman Adrienne Mitchell tells Al.com that the girls are facing disciplinary action over the Wednesday discovery of the butter knife. Mitchell didn't say whether school officials investigating the girls' actions had determined what the girls planned to do with the knife.

She says a teacher saw the knife and immediately confiscated it. She says no students were in danger.
