A Dominion High School student was arrested after he assaulted a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office school resource officer Thursday afternoon, according to the sheriff's office.
The incident reportedly happened shortly after 1 p.m. when a member of the school’s administrative staff was attempting to have the student go to the office from the school’s cafeteria. The student refused and assaulted the staff member, according to the sheriff's office.
The LCSO deputy assigned to the school then approached the student and attempted to calm him down. The student reportedly assaulted the deputy who defended himself while taking the student into custody.
The student has been charged with felony obstruction of justice by force, assault on a school official, felony assault on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct in a school and destruction of property.
The deputy was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries.
The juvenile's identity is not being released at this time.
