Video: Virginia Student Faces Felony Charges After Brawl With School Officer

A school officer went to the hospital and a student went to jail after a brawl inside a Loudoun County, Virginia, high school school cafeteria on Thursday, authorities say.

Video News4 obtained of the fight shows a Dominion High School student and a school resource officer punching and hitting each other.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened about 1 p.m. when an administrator at the school told the student to go to the office from the cafeteria.

Authorities say the student refused multiple times and assaulted the staff member.

Then, the deputy who works at the school tried going up to the student to calm him down, but the student turned and assaulted the officer, the sheriff's office said.

The officer "defended himself while taking the student into custody," according to the sheriff's office.

Medics took the deputy to a hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

The student refused medical treatment and was taken to the Loudoun Juvenile Detention Center.

He was arrested and charged with felony counts of obstruction of justice by force and assault on a law enforcement officer and three misdemeanor counts of assault on a school official, disorderly conduct in school and destruction of property.
