WSBT's Sarah Rice reported:


"Police say they were forced to use a Taser to control a student during a fight at school."

"Police say they had a hard time getting the 14-year-old student under control Friday, especially because of his size - he's almost 6 feet tall and weighs 230 pounds."

"'There was a 14-year-old kid who was hitting a 16-year-old kid,' explained Elkhart Police Lt. Ed Windbigler. 'As they broke up the fight, the 14-year-old continued to fight and attempted to go after the 16-year-old that he was fighting with.'"

"So police used a Taser on the student. They claim there was no other way to get him under control."
