A Texas high school student was jailed for several charges when he allegedly injured an officer with scissors after he was reportedly found with THC vape oil on campus.
On January 18, a 17-year-old student at China Spring High School was reportedly seen passing an object to a fellow classmate while they were together in the bathroom.
The Independent School District officer who reportedly witnessed the hand-off believed that the item looked like a vape pen.
The teen was detained and ushered to the office of the vice principal, and additional law enforcement came to the school.
It was reported that when the district police chief arrived and patted down the student, they said that he reached over and swiped the scissors off the vice principal’s desk. He allegedly cut the hand of one of the officers with the blade, and the officer required on-site medical care from the emergency medical service crew.
He reportedly resisted, but the officers were able to place the teen in handcuffs.
According to reports, when they were able to search him, the authorities found four full 1-gram canisters of marijuana vape oil. They also allegedly found a gram canister that was used.
The police reported that the student was carrying $400 in cash, and they asserted that he made the money by selling marijuana oil to other students at the school.
The teen was placed under arrest and booked into the McLennan County Jail. He is facing many charges including aggravated assault of a public servant, resisting arrest or detention, possession of a penalty group 2 narcotic, and deliver/offering to deliver dangerous drugs. He was being held on a $37,000 bond.
