A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer shot a Garinger High School student with a Taser gun Monday morning. It's the second time in four days that an officer used the electroshock weapon on a student.
A police spokesman said the officer fired the Taser on Monday after a 17-year-old student slapped an assistant principal and refused to follow orders. The student, who was later arrested, had been called to the office because he was late for school.
On Friday, a school resource officer at East Mecklenburg High School shot a 14-year-old girl with a Taser after she attacked an assistant principal.
The students and school administrators were not seriously injured
