Three Boulder Creek High School students have been arrested following an early morning fight on campus which injured one student and one resource officer.

The resource officer, an off-duty MCSO sergeant, was attempting to take one of the students into custody when two other minors intervened, according to Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman Chris Hegstrom. The altercation involved the officer, an assistant principal, a security staff member and the three students. One student was taken into custody and another was tased by the sergeant before being taken into custody, said Hegstrom, while the third fled.

DPS, Daisy Mountain Fire Department and MCSO units responded to the scene. A helicopter joined the pursuit of the fleeing suspect which lead to a desert trail just north of the Landing in Anthem where the suspect was apprehended and taken into custody.

Two of the minors were charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of disorderly conduct. The other was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct.

Injuries were minor and no one was transported to the hospital, according to DMFD’s Capt. Dave Wilson.
