Middle School Student Charged with Disorderly Conduct / Assault / Resisting Arrest: On March 2 at the start of the school day, administrators at Milton Somers Middle School notified school resource officers about a fight that had just occurred. The students were separated; however one student was behaving disorderly and refused to comply with administrators. Officers made efforts to deescalate, but the student made numerous attempts to get away in order to continue the fight. He refused to comply and was placed under arrest, which he actively resisted. The school had been placed in a hold status due to the incident and an officer sustained minor injuries as a result of the student resisting arrest.

The student, a 14-year-old, was charged on a Juvenile Offense Report for affray, disturbing school operations, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and second-degree assault.  In accordance with Maryland law the student was released to a parent. In addition to criminal charges, he also faces disciplinary action from the Charles County Public Schools (CCPS). Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact M/Cpl. K. Burger at 301-609-3282 ext. 0475.
