No. 4 Story of the Year: Drug Arrest at L-S Turns Violent

A look back at what made news in Sudbury in 2012.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Top 5 stories, which will run from Dec. 17-21, were based on total page views as of Dec. 10.)

The community errupted on Feb. 17 after a drug arrest at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School was reported.

The confrontation between student Khalil Chambers and detectives Wayne Shurling and Stephanie Howe turned physical as Chambers began to fight with school officials and Howe.

Chambers, who lives at 71 Wildwood St., Boston, was charged with:

  • Assault and battery on an officer
  • Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (door)
  • Defacing property
  • Resisting arrest
  • Disturbing a school assembly
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Possession of a class D substance with intent to distribute
  • Drug violation near a school.

Lincoln-Sudbury Superintendent/Principal Scott Carpenter said due to school policy he could not comment on whether Chambers was expelled.

"It’s sufficient to say the high school takes this quite seriously," he told Sudbury Patch.

Are you a student? Sure marijuana is present at the school, that's a given, it's everywhere because everyone smokes it, this is 2012, almost 2013... Oxy is hard to find at LS, while heroin is not being sold in the school. Sure we can continue to spend billions each year fighting marijuana and pushing the useless DARE program... but why? Ah well... true marijuana reform won't really occur until once your generation has finally passed.
