Arrest at WOHS

November 1, 2012

A student discipline incident that escalated this morning at West-Oak High School and required a police backup resulted in a student’s referral to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Chief Deputy Terry Wilson of the Oconee Sheriff’s Department said a 16-year old student is being referred to DJJ on three charges: simple assault, disturbing school, and resisting arrest. Because the incident occurred at the start of the school day and the possibility that some parents saw deputies arrive at the campus, the principal sent an alert on the district’s One Call Now stressing that the incident did not endanger other students, according to Dr. Michael Thorsland, Assistant Superintendent of Operations for Oconee schools.
