An Oakdale Elementary School student was arrested Friday after officials say he turned over desks, threw books and threatened to shoot a Rock Hill police officer with his own gun.
The student, a 10-year-old Rock Hill boy, began overturning desks in his classroom and shouting profanities at school officials after apparently getting upset with his teacher and principal, according to a Rock Hill police report. He tossed items from the desk onto the floor before picking up the desk, holding it over his head and threatened to throw it.
Officers were called to the school and detained the boy, who began shouting profanities at police while they took him to the law center. When his mother arrived, the boy threatened to take the officers gun and harm him physically, the report states.
Police released the boy to his mother, but he soon ran down the back hallway of the law center and tried to open the door to the jail. When police tried to stop him, he fell on the floor and refused to get up. Officers picked up the boy from the floor and helped his mother get him inside the vehicle.
He has been charged with disturbing schools and will appear in family court.
