LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – KCBD NewsChannel 11 has learned new details on the arrest of a former Coronado student accused of assaulting an officer and school employee.

21-year-old Christopher Watters remains jailed, charged with aggravated assault and assault on a public servant. On January 31st, Lubbock ISD says Watters went into Coronado high school, unauthorized. A district police officer saw Watters in the cafeteria with a pair of scissors. When confronted, Watters reportedly told the officer he was cutting up pictures. Watters put down the scissors and then went to a classroom according to the police report.

Students were removed from that room for their safety, and as the officer tried to handcuff Watters, police say he fought back. A school employee tried to help, but police say Watters grabbed the employee's necktie and started choking him. Lubbock Police Department arrived to assist, and reported that they had dealt with Watters the night before. According to the police report, that's when Watters mother went to the courthouse to get an emergency committal warrant. At the time the warrant had not been signed by a judge.

 Watters is held on a combined 30-thousand dollar bond.
