FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A student at Fort Myers Middle Academy was arrested for battery on a school official on Tuesday. 

The 14 year old student started a fight with a student he believed ratted on him about having marijuana on Monday. The Assistant Principal saw the student toss the other student to the ground, both students were separated and the student who started the fight was sent to the office to be held until the end of the day so he would not get into another incident. 

The Assistant Principal also issued the student a 10 day suspension and told him a meeting would be scheduled with his parents. 

When the final school bell rang, a teacher was escorting the boy to the bus when the boy became irritated and aggressive. He started lashing out verbally and breaking branches on the nearby trees.

The boy then threw his book bag at the Assistant Principal, and well as starting throwing rocks at her. The Assistant Principal was able to block the rocks with her forearm, causing bruising and a lump on her arm. She ran to a nearby classroom in fear for her safety. 

While another teacher was attempting to retrain the student, he bit him several times on the leg, causing minor injury. 

As Lee County Sheriff's Deputies retrained the student, he injured a third teacher by kicking her in the face, striking her nose with his foot. 

The student was taken to Juvenile Assessment Center without incident.
