TAYLORSVILLE, Utah, Dec. 16, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — A Unified Police Department officer assigned to Taylorsville High School used his Taser on a student Friday morning.
Lt. Brian Lohrke said the 17-year-old male was physically threatening the officer when the stun gun was deployed. Lohrke said the student was trying to leave the premises when the officer told him to stop.
“He turned and squared off on the officer,” Lohrke said. Asked for specifics, Lohrke said the student faced the officer and balled up his fists.
Lohrke said the student was unhurt, and was released to his parents. The student could be charged with resisting arrest or attempted assault, Lohrke said.
