Old Main incident leads to arrest

Staff Writer

An Overton sophomore was arrested Sept. 6 after he repeatedly refused to leave his English class in Old Main. KC Police Chief Martin Pessink said the student reportedly had a disagreement with his instructor concerning his use of electronic devices during class.

The continuing disruptions led to the instructor’s calling KCPD to remove the student from the classroom.

KCPD officer Lt. Tony Means arrested the student after additional demands to exit the class were ignored.

The student faces charges of school disruption (a Class B misdemeanor) which is punishable by fines and possible jail time if found guilty. He may also be subject to punishment by KC in accordance with the rules of conduct.
