According to Lt. Robert Grady, the department received a call from the high school at about 12:50 p.m. regarding a possible drug violation at the East House.
When detectives Wayne Shurling and Stephanie Howe arrived, a school official was in the bathroom with Khalil Chambers, who was heard screaming.
Grady said school officials had to clear the hallway as students began to gather.
After Shurling and Howe entered the bathroom, they attempted to take the 17-year-old Chambers into custody for disorderly conduct and disturbing a school assembly.
"As they approached Chambers, he became more disorderly," Grady said. "He was observed throwing several Ziploc bags and green, leafy substances fell from his pockets."
It was determined by Shurling the substance was marijuana.
Detectives then told Chambers he was under arrest and attempted to handcuff him. But despite numerous verbal commands, Chambers pulled away, according to Grady, and began to fight with school officials and Howe. Howe was struck in her face and had a necklace ripped off, causing several scratches, Grady said.
A school official was also injured when a bathroom stall door struck his hand.
Chambers, who lives at 71 Wildwood St., Boston, faces numerous charges including:
- 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.
Chambers was bailed out at 7:30 p.m. and was scheduled to be arraigned at Framingham District Court on Friday.
Lincoln-Sudbury Superintendent/Principal Scott Carpenter said due to school policy he could not comment on whether Chambers has been expelled.
"It’s sufficient to say the high school takes this quite seriously," he told Sudbury Patch.
