Two teens arrested after incident inside Massaponax High
Two teenagers were arrested this morning after confronting a teacher inside a classroom at Massaponax High School, Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Harvey said.
Four students – two boys and two girls – went into a classroom to confront a teacher they thought had information about the whereabouts of a stolen jacket and created commotion, Harvey said. The female teacher reported that the students cussed at and threatened to beat her up, he said.
An administrator responded to the classroom and the students were brought into the office where one of the students balled his fist as if to strike the school’s resource officer, Harvey said.
A school staff member called 9-1-1 when the students appeared to be out of control. Additional deputies responded, Harvey said.
Deputies charged Jonathan Milton, 19, with assault on a law enforcement officer, a felony, and with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, Harvey said.
Darius Baker, 18, was charged with disorderly conduct, he said. Both young men were released after appearing before a magistrate.
Petitions were being obtained charging a 16-year-old girl and 17-year-old girl with one count of disorderly conduct each, Harvey said. The older girl also faces two counts of threatening school personnel, a misdemeanor, Harvey said.
No one was injured.
