ROCK HILL — A South Pointe High School resource officer used a stun gun on a student who refused to follow directions and then shouted profanities in the hallway and office Wednesday, police say.
Dominique Rashad Hope, 18, was arrested and charged with disturbing schools and resisting arrest, according to a Rock Hill police report.
The officer placed Hope under arrest when he tried to leave the school office, but Hope began fighting back when the officer tried to handcuff him, the report states. Hope continued to resist and refused to place his hands behind back.
The officer deployed his Taser and stunned Hope for five seconds while simultaneously struggling with him on the floor, the report shows. Hope then complied with the officer’s orders and was taken to the Rock Hill city jail. He is currently held at the York County Detention Center on a $3,000 bond.
There were no serious injuries reported.
