Bradley County Sheriff Eric Watson outlined two incidents at Bradley Central High School, both dealt with by a School Resource Officer and administrators.
In the first incident last Wednesday a 15-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and communicating threats to school employees. The charges were filed after he allegedly assaulted another student at Bradley Central and threatened a school administrator, as well as attempting to break away from the SRO. The SRO and other BCSO officers took the juvenile into custody.
The second incident took place on Tuesday when a 14-year-old juvenile was taken into custody by the school SRO for possessing a knife. The juvenile alleged he was going to stab another juvenile who he said had assaulted him. The knife has been recovered and logged into evidence by officers. The juvenile was placed at the Juvenile Detention Center.
Sheriff Eric Watson commented, “These events show the importance of the School Resource Officers and how well they communicate and cooperate with school administrators. Both incidents were handled without injuries to the juveniles involved or to other students and staff.”
