A 12-year-old boy, who's believed to have given a marijuana-laced brownie to his fellow students, has been arrested in Costa Mesa.

Police say Pomona Elementary School officials caught the boy with a bag of pot in his backpack Thursday, and he was arrested a short time later at home.

He is believed to have passed out a pot brownie to several students on campus Tuesday, sickening at least six of them.

They were treated at a local hospital for dizziness and nausea.
