High School student tasered after refusing to go to the principal's office

A 17-year-old Ypsilanti High School student was tasered today after police say he refused to go to the principal’s office.

Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Derrick Jackson said the student was being unruly in the hallway and was being escorted to the principal’s office by school Deputy John Campbell.

Jackson said the student yanked away and refused to go to the office. He said the incident escalated, and the deputy deployed his taser to get the student under control and maintain the safety of school personnel.

Jackson said the student was arrested and taken to the Washtenaw County Jail. He said the incident is still under investigation.

Emma Jackson, a spokeswoman for the district, referred comment to the sheriff's department.
