A suspended Fort Mill High School student was charged with assault Monday after he went on campus at the end of the school day and got into an altercation with two other students, according to a Fort Mill Police Department report.
Tyler Lee Osman, 17, argued with his girlfriend in the band parking lot at the school, and later threw a punch at another male student, the report states. At one point, the report says, Osman grabbed his girlfriend’s keys to prevent her from leaving the parking lot.
Osman threw a punch at another male student, who shifted away and caught the blow on his shoulder, the report states.
Principal Dee Christopher and a school resource officer “calmed (Osman) down,” and walked him to the resource officer’s office, the report states. The student then “became irate and started jumping and yelling he did not assault (his girlfriend),” the report states.

According to the report, Osman told Christopher and the resource officer he did not assault his girlfriend, but “he did say he assaulted a person in a car that was getting into his business.”
The resource officer told police a security camera shows Osman “ran toward (the other male student’s) car aggressively, and then the car pulled away and left the parking lot,” the report states.
Osman was arrested and charged with assault and battery third degree, and given a citation for trespassing, according to the report. A May 10 court date has been set on the assault charge, records show.
