Student accused of threat to teacher
BAKER - Authorities arrested a Baker High School student after police said he threatened to attack an assistant principal at the school Monday.
Baker Police charged 18-year-old Devonte Walker with assault on a teacher, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace after his arrest Monday morning.
Police said the BHS assistant principal told Walker to put his cell phone away and he refused. The assistant principal said he told Walker to come to his office, but Walker shouted at him in the crowded hallway and balled his fists up as if he was about to attack the administrator, saying "I will knock you out."
The assistant principal contacted the school resource officer, who contacted Baker Police. Officers arrived to detain Walker, and said he actively resisted.
Police booked him into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail where he was given a $5,500 bond.
