LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A former Coronado High School student is charged with aggravated assault and assault on a public servant after an incident on the LISD campus Monday.

According to police, 21-year-old Christopher Watters entered the High School unauthorized and went into a classroom. Police say the classroom was evacuated. LISD says the subject did not have any weapons and did not make a threat towards students.

Police say when LISD and LPD officers approached Watters to remove him they were assaulted. The police report says Watters "used his fists and feet to assault a person in a distinctive uniform and caused serious bodily injury to another person in a public servant position".

There were three other victims including the CHS Assistant. Principal, a coach, and teacher.

LISD says he did not have a legitimate reason to be on campus, and he was arrested and served with a criminal trespass warning. LISD says the doors to CHS are unsecured. They say since the new bond passed they will be able to now have controlled access on campus.

Police say Watters has a medical condition.

He remains behind bars with two charges. He is jailed on a $30,000 bond.

Statement from LISD:

"On 01-31-11, an unauthorized visitor entered a CHS classroom, and the normal class period was disrupted as administrators and police removed the subject from the classroom. The subject did not possess any weapons and did not make any threats towards students. He did not have a legitimate reason for being on the campus, and he was arrested and served with a criminal trespass warning. LISD central administrators, including the Chief of Police, are working with the campus to assess this situation and to insure that proper safety and security procedures on the campus are being followed."
