PORT BARRE (AP) — A Port Barre High School student has been booked with battery on a school teacher and public intimidation

just as school was letting out for Thanksgiving holiday break on Nov. 16.

The Daily World reported18-year-old L'Tredrick Charles Roberts, of

Opelousas, became "verbally combative

and aggressive" with Assistant Principal Barbara Roberson as she

dismissed students from the school's bleachers that afternoon.

Roberts was allegedly swearing and ordering Roberson to move out

of the way.

Seth Ortego, a coach with the school who is also a trained reserve sheriff's deputy and police officer, stepped in between

the two.

Roberts was booked into the Port Barre jail. He was released on bond Nov. 21.

It was unclear whether Roberts has an attorney.
