Fourteen year old Hixson High student arrested by SRO

11/19/2008

A verbal argument that started yesterday between two male students at Hixson High School ended today with the arrest of both. This morning the two students while in class became involved in an argument that resulted in the School Resource Officer being called to the classroom. He requested both students to stop the unruly behavior and while one complied with the request, the other did not.

The fourteen year old student refused to stop and became aggressive with Deputy Greg Carson who after repeated warnings, tazed the student. Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services was called to check the student as per policy.

The one student was charged with Disorderly Conduct for his involvement and received a Citation arrest. The second student was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Assault on an Officer and was transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center.
