WINDHAM: Student disabled with Taser during fight at high school
A Windham police officer temporarily disabled a Windham High School student with a shock from a Taser on Thursday as she fought with another female student.
Officer Smith, the school resource officer, was called to a hallway in the high school at 7:30 a.m. because two students were fighting. The two refused to stop and when he tried to separate the two, he was himself kicked, Sgt. Fulton said.
Smith decided against using pepper spray in the hall, which was full of students, and instead fired his Taser at Desiree while she was on top of her 16-year-old adversary.
Neither girl was hurt, Fulton said.
Both were charged with disorderly conduct. The 16-year-old was released to her parents and , 18, was taken to Cumberland County Jail, where she was freed on bail. The police report did not say what started the fight, Fulton said.
