FAIRFIELD — Police were called to Dwight School on Wednesday afternoon to help school staff deal with a 10-year-old student who was reported to be out of control.
Administrators at the elementary school called police around 1 p.m. asking for assistance with a student who was having behavioral issues and reportedly throwing tables and chairs inside a classroom, according to a police statement.
Four teachers reportedly suffered minor injuries during the incident. One teacher had a bruised leg and was taken to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport, while a second teacher was taken to a private doctor by a friend before officers arrived.
The two other teachers declined medical attention, and police said no students were injured during the incident.
The student was released to his parents’ custody.
