KINGWOOD, Texas – An 18-year-old student at Kingwood High School was arrested Tuesday morning after he was accused of drawing racial graffiti on several school restroom walls on Friday, court documents state.

Trent McKay Skinner, of Kingwood, is charged with graffiti with bail set at $5,000.

The principal at Kingwood High School told police with the Humble Independent School District that several restrooms at the school were hit with graffiti, which referred to Aryan Brotherhood and Neo Nazi symbols, according to a police affidavit.

After reviewing security video, officials were able to determine that Skinner was the primary suspect and pulled him out of class. An administrative search was conducted and found drawings that matched the ones in the restrooms and three black permanent markers.
