DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police were called to a special needs school for the second time in two days after a student pushed a teacher to the ground.
Officers responded to the South Community School located at 2745 South Smithville Road around 9:30 a.m. Friday.
The teacher told police a student failed to do his assignment, became upset, and threw chairs around the room. She said he then got up on a window, jumped off of it, and then ran towards the door. According to the police report, the student ran into the teacher and pushed her to the ground before running out of the classroom and into the hallway.
The staff was able to get the student under control. Police placed him under arrest and then released him to his mother.
This was the second time in two days police were called to the school.

Police arrested the girl on charges of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal damaging. She was taken to Juvenile Detention.
