YUMA, AZ - A Yuma High School student is in custody for allegedly assaulting a school resource officer.

Yuma police say 19-year-old Omar McQueen was arrested about 10 a.m. Friday.

They say McQueen has been booked into the Yuma County Detention Center on suspicion of one count of aggravated assault on a police officer and possession of marijuana for sale in a drug-free school zone.

Police say the resource officer was investigating a possible drug offense and McQueen was taken to a school office and told he was under arrest.

Police didn't immediately know Friday if McQueen had an attorney yet.
