A Dominion High School student was being held in the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center Thursday night (Feb. 28) after he allegedly assaulted a school official and a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer Thursday afternoon.
According to the LCSO, the incident occurred 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 multiple times and assaulted the staff member.
The LCSO deputy assigned to the school approached the student and attempted to calm him down. The student then turned and assaulted the deputy, who defended himself while taking the student into custody.
The deputy was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. The student refused medical treatment and was taken into custody. Juvenile petitions are pending.
