LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A teenager has been charged with two counts of felony assault after police said they had to Taser him at a Louisville school for fighting with officers serving him with an arrest warrant.
The 16-year-old boy is also facing misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, menacing and criminal mischief.
Officials said the officers were forced to Taser him at Jefferson County High School on Tuesday while he was trying to enroll.
A spokeswoman for Jefferson County Public Schools said the teenager is from Pulaski County and had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. His name has not been released because he is a juvenile.
Louisville Metro Police spokesman Phil Russell said the teenager was shackled by his feet at the time, but "he had grabbed a pencil and was threatening to stab the deputy and security officer."
