Alvarado briefly went to a classroom but continued to shout. When approached by an administrator he allegedly pushed the person away.

Alvarado was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct – disturbing school. He was taken before a magistrate then released on a $500 bond.

He could also face disciplinary action under the Johnston County Public Schools Code of Conduct Policy.
