Shank Found In NC State Coach's Son Cell

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- A homemade knife was found in the jail cell of the son of North Carolina State basketball coach Sidney Lowe, one week after he entered guilty pleas to robbery and kidnapping charges.

Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes said Wednesday that deputies found the shank inside the cell housing Sidney Lowe II during a random check Monday morning.

The younger Lowe was sentenced earlier this month to 15 months at the Guilford County Farm, a detention center primarily for non-violent offenders. The pleas stemmed from a robbery in Greensboro.

Barnes said Lowe pleaded guilty to a disciplinary charge. The sheriff said another infraction could lead to disciplinary measures, including loss of privileges.
