A school resource officer was injured Wednesday morning when he backed into a glass window at Garinger High School.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools spokeswoman said the incident took place about 11:30 a.m. inside the northeast Charlotte school. She said the officer was “involved in a situation” with a student and stepped backward.

He backed into the window, the spokeswoman said, and it shattered. The officer suffered cuts on his hand and was taken by Medic to a hospital for treatment. Steve Lyttle
