BRIDGE CITY, TEXAS - A teen attempting to enroll into the Bridge City Independent School District's alternative program has been arrested after allegedly assaulting the Bridge City I.S.D. Police chief and another officer Wednesday morning.

The 15 year-old boy became combative on campus after Bridge City ISD officials told him he could not enroll without a parent or guardian and paperwork from his prior school district according to a release from Bridge City ISD superintendent Todd Lintzen.

According to the release the teen was detained by the Bridge City ISD Police chief and a Bridge City Police officer after he threatened the school administration and the BCISD Police chief.

The teen allegedly assaulted the BCISD Police chief and the other officer according to Police.

The student, whose name will not be released because of his age, was taken to the hospital following the incident with unspecified injuries according to police.

Police said the officers also received some injuries.

Multiple charges have been filed against the teen according to the BCISD release.
