The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is the agency that has school resource officers at Spring Valley High.
Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott tells News19 that a disruptive student refused to leave after a teacher asked her to.
An administrator was called to the room, and also asked the student to leave, Lott said, and she refused again. Finally, the school resource officer came to the room. Lott said the officer forcibly removed the student and she resisted arrest.
Lott said the child was put under arrest.
