New information on the East Lansing high school student Tasered by police in the school cafeteria last week.

Police say Marcus Reid was Tasered when he attacked the school resource officer, as the officer tried to escort Hodan Sharif from school grounds.

Sharif had been suspended and police say she had refused to leave campus.

Reid has been charged with assaulting an officer and disorderly conduct.

Reid's mother claims her son had been harrassed by the same officer who Tasered him.

Police say they shocked Reid more than once because he kept fighting them, and it took several officers to restrain the 220 lb. student.

A third student was also arrested and will be charged.

    First of all i would like to say there are two sides to this story. The young man lives in east lansing and was raised in east lansing, second he has NEVER been in a fight before, nor does he have a criminal record. Before we open our mouth I beleive that we should speak facts what if this was your kid.

    You know, I think it’s so funny that there are so many ignorant people in the world.....I graduated from East Lansing High School as a school of choice student. How dare you ever belittle and categorize all students of choice students. Honestly not all of them are that bad. It’s funny though because from my understanding in 2003 or 2002 there was a huge drug bust from an east Lansing student who lived in the district, but you say that its schools of choice students. Please have all of your facts before you try and past judgments on things you know absolutely nothing about. If the little boy resisted arrest there was obviously an underlying issue which caused him to do so. I suggest you get all the facts because there are always two sides to a story and the truth. When will you realize that? Lastly abolish school of choice and then you will have everybody moving to East Lansing and then where will it leave you? The whole community will be at risk Everybody Run!!!!

      What little boy? Also, doesn't school of choice affect the budget of other schools when the students there attend school in another district?

    The schools are just as guilty, preach to our children if your spanked or disciplined its child abuse and this is the byproduct of it. Maybe they should have put him in a timeout. Parents of these kids should recieve a fine and be held accountable for there kids actions bottom line.

    This is why school of choice is a NO NO! I bet if we did some research he came from somewhere in Lansing where he caused trouble and had a history of suspensions. I'm so tired of East Lansing schools taking in students with a history of behavioral issues only to spread their cancer in and among nice suburban students whose parents live and pay taxes here in East Lansing. I bet if we put a stop to school of choice, we would no longer have these problems. We don't ever hear of Haslett or Okemos having these types of behavioral problems. Bottom line, this student should be expelled and shame on the mother for blaming the police for "harassing" her son. Get a clue lady, your son is a bad apple! I'm glad my tax dollars are hard at work here in E. Lansing!

    There is more to this issue than one incident if the kid resisted arrest.

    actually he didnt, i bet if it was your kid it would be a problem then.

    Interesting that these kids have been kicked out of other schools for fighting as well. Why is it always someone else's fault? Maybe the parent and kids should take responsiblity for their own actions!

    Parents -- You get the children that you raise. Can we all please do a better job so our children aren't being raised by police officers and teachers?

    I'll bet this kid has trouble with the authorities on an on going basis.

    What is it with kids today. I am sorry but I do not believe that the police did anything wrong.
