West Johnston High Student Arrested

A student at West Johnston High School was arrested while on campus Friday.

JoCoReport has learned the student was reportedly upset with a teacher after being written up for skipping class.  17 year-old Anthony Lashawn Shaw of Willow Spring allegedly went to the gymnasium where the teacher was located.  Authorities allege Shaw was attempting to “go after” the teacher when an assistant principal grabbed the teen around the waist preventing him from reaching the teacher.

A school resource officer took Shaw into custody and charged him with disorderly conduct on school property. Shaw was transported to the Johnston County Jail where a magistrate set his bail at $500.  No injuries were reported and no other students were involved.
