Student in custody for damaging computers at Belmont H.S.

A Belmont High School student was taken into custody on Tuesday after she allegedly damaged computers, including a teacher’s.

The alleged incident happened around 11 a.m. Tuesday, when a male teacher asked the female student to log off Facebook and work on her assignment, according to a Dayton police report.

The student claims she complied, the report says, and moments later, the teacher asked again.

The student then alleged the teacher “talk(ed) down to her” and said “how nice it was not having her in class.”

The report says more words were exchanged, and the student claimed she said that if the teacher didn’t stop talking, “she was going to break the computer.”

She then got up from her desk, and begin sliding the computer keyboards off the desks.

In total, at least seven computer monitors, five keyboards, five PC units and a printer in the computer classroom were damaged, the report says. The student also allegedly damaged the teacher’s computer.

The student admitted to the incident, the police report says.

The student was transported to the Montgomery County Juvenile Justice Center.

Jill Moberley, DPS spokesperson, said: “We have launched our own internal investigation, in addition to the police investigation. This is a disciplinary issue and we can’t comment beyond that.”
