Disturbance at Roane Academy

By Hugh Willett

A Taser was used to restrain a juvenile, who was taken to the hospital following a disturbance at Roane Academy last week, according to Steve Norris, president and CEO of Omni Visions, operator of the facility.

Norris said juveniles at the facility in Roane County Industrial Park were moved to the gymnasium following a technical malfunction that caused a fire alarm to sound.

Two of the juveniles in the gym began to fight but were restrained by staff.

“It’s the kind of thing that could happen in any high school,” Norris said.
