Assistant principal attacked, student arrested

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A female student at Milwaukee Hamilton High School has been arrested for attacking an assistant principal.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the 16-year-old girl attacked the assistant principal Monday afternoon, perhaps because she was upset over a suspension.

Milwaukee police has officers stationed at the schools and responded quickly. They had to use pepper spray to get the girl under control.

School spokesman Tony Tagliavia calls the incident "troubling." He says the girl is being moved to an alternative program for students with behavioral issues.

Tagliavia called on parents to help prevent incidents.
