ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. -- Deputies say a meeting between school leaders, a 14-year-old student and his family turned violent forcing them to use a Taser on the teen.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office says the teen became angry when he learned he had to go back to class after the meeting at Pacetti Bay Middle School. When the school resource deputy attempted to escort the student back to class, they say the teen put the deputy in a headlock, punched him and tried to take his gun.

The Sheriff's Office says the deputy was able to push the teen away and then used his Taser to subdue the student.

Deputies say county rescue workers checked the teen out and cleared him. The student was then taken to the St. Johns County Jail. He is charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly conduct and violation of probation.
