NORMANDY, Mo. (AP) - A suburban St. Louis school district has suspended a security official accused of using a stun gun on a 14-year-old.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Normandy Police Chief Frank Mininni says the security official was arrested Friday at Normandy Middle School after witnesses were interviewed and security footage reviewed. No charges have been filed.

Mininni says the student was a half-day student who was getting ready to go home when the security official told him to go back to class. Mininni says the student replied, “I’m not going back to class, I’m going home,” and tried to outpace the security official before being stunned. Police called an ambulance, but the student’s father took him to a hospital.

A school district spokeswoman says the district is cooperating with police.
