    Joshua Walker-Thomas was arrested after police said he distributed pot brownies at the Metropolitan Learning Center.

    One of the students arrested on charges of distributing marijuana-laced brownies to peers at the Metropolitan Learning Center is due in Hartford Superior Court again Tuesday.

    Student Joshua Walker-Thomas, 18, of Bloomfield, faces a felony risk of injury to a minor charge after turning himself into police.

    Walker-Thomas is the second teen to be arrested in connection with the incident. A 16-year-old girl was also charged late last month.

    He last appeared in court on July 3 for his arraignment and  has not pleaded yet in the case. Walker-Thomas was released from custody on a promise to appear in court.

    The pot brownies reportedly sent a 15-year-old boy to the hospital in a "stupor state" on June 25, according to police.

    The Capitol Region Education Council  (CREC) operates the Metropolitan Learning Center.
