A 17-year-old Archer High School student from Loganville was arrested Wednesday and charged with simple battery and disrupting a school after an alleged assault against a teacher.
According to the Gwinnett County School Police report, the incident occurred between 8 and 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 24. The teacher said she was holding a piece of paper that Kentrae Deion Nelson wanted when he reportedly grabbed her by the hands and squeezed until she let go of the paper.
Police were called after the teacher said she felt threatened. The student was arrested and transported to the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
Jorge Quintana, spokesman for Gwinnett County Public Schools, said the student would also be disciplined by the school system.
