A visit to the dean's office Tuesday ended with a 17-year-old Bellevue student in handcuffs.
Police arrested the Bellevue West High School student after he punched and kicked holes in the wall in the dean's office and resisted arrest, said Laurie Synowiecki, spokeswoman for the Bellevue Police Department.
The student was escorted to the office for a disciplinary issue. An administrator told the student he was going to be ticketed for stealing an iPhone.
He became angry, combative and punched holes in the wall, Synowiecki said. The student also kicked a hole in the wall when the school resource officer was escorting him out of the dean's office.
The resource officer pushed his "help an officer" emergency button that requests backup about 3:15 p.m.
At least seven police cruisers showed up at the school, but the resource officer was able to get the student in handcuffs and to calm him down, Synowiecki said.
Bellevue Public Schools said no one was injured.
The student was taken to the Juvenile Justice Center and ticketed on suspicion of possession of stolen property, criminal mischief and resisting arrest.
