Drunk Teen in Gym Class Punches School Cop, Paramedic
A 15-year-old boy who was intoxicated in his phys ed class wound up punching a school security officer and a paramedic who were removing him from the campus. The incident took place at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Pasadena High School, according to KTLA.
The security officer was attempting to get the student, whose identity is being withheld since he is a minor, out of the class and into a golf cart so he could get him to the school nurse. However, the teen "became verbally abusive" and hit the security officer in the shoulder.
The teen tried to take the golf cart for a ride, but luckily the keys weren't in the vehicle.
The paramedics arrived on scene soon after, and restrained the intoxicated teen. He was taken to a nearby hospital, but once the restraints were loosened, the teen "punched a paramedic in the face." He was issued a citation for the assault, and ultimately was released into the care of his parents.
