A CY Junior High student was arrested Monday morning for allegedly assaulting a staff member at the school.
Sgt. Scott Jones, who leads the Casper Police Department's school resource officers, said that the administrators at CY called police Monday "concerning a student."
"Given the nature of the incident, and after consultation with the District Attorney's Office, my officer removed the student from the school," Jones said, later clarifying that the student had been arrested.
Jones confirmed the incident was a student-on-staff issue. He declined to specify details, other than to say it didn't involve a weapon and that the broader school population was never in danger. He said the student in question made "poor choices."
According to a log of police arrests, the student was arrested at 9:23 Monday morning for simple assault, which is a misdemeanor charge and carries a six-month maximum jail sentence.
