A Marshalltown officer used a stun gun on a high school student who became disruptive in class.

The Times-Republican reports the incident happened Monday at Marshalltown High School when a student began disrupting a classroom.

Marshalltown Police Chief Mike Tupper says school resource officer Kraig Lageschulte and a juvenile liaison officer tried unsuccessfully to take the boy into custody.

The two officers struggled to control the student, and Lageschulte threatened to use a stun gun if the boy kept fighting.

The student didn't stop and was shocked. He was then taken to a juvenile detention facility and charged with disorderly conduct, interference with official acts and simple misdemeanor assault.

Tupper will review the case but says the stun gun use appeared to be appropriate.
