A student sent a Baltimore school police officer to the hospital Tuesday after she tossed bleach onto a group as the officer tried to break up a fight.
The female student now faces assault charges for throwing bleach on the school officer and two other people, CBS Baltimore reported.
A fight reportedly broke out at Achievement Academy between students, when the unidentified student decided to throw bleach into the officer’s eyes. Some of the bleach also landed in the hall monitor’s eyes and on another student, a Baltimore school official said.
“He’s an experienced, highly decorated officer who is almost a legend in the Northeast Baltimore community,” said president of the city school police union, Sgt. Clyde Boatwright. “He is known to almost anybody who went to middle school or high school in that area because he’s so well liked.”
The hall monitor and the officer were given medical treatment on the scene. The officer is expected to make a full recovery, though he will probably need future medical care. Authorities plan to charge the student responsible as a adult with three counts of first degree assault, as well as reckless endangerment.
