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.
