MARYVILLE (WATE) - A Montgomery Ridge Intermediate School student was arrested Monday after becoming unruly and attempting to hit a police officer.

According to Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp, a community police officer was called to the school by the assistant principal for an unruly student.

The officer arrived and made contact with the 10-year-old student. The student was asked to accompany the assistant principal to the office, but the student continued to yell and make loud noises in the hallways and stick his head into classrooms, disrupting students.

Crisp says the officer repeatedly told the student to stop creating a disturbance. When the officer then tried to apprehend the student, the boy attempted to pull away from the officer. He then tried to strike the officer with his left hand.

The officer then placed the student up against lockers and handcuffed him, while the boy continued to struggle.

The 10-year-old was also reportedly unruly in the officer's patrol car and tried to open the door.

He was taken to juvenile justice center where a petition for disorderly conduct was issued.
