Student charged with assault on a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest, CD East.

DATE: Friday, December 10, 2010

Lower Paxton Twp. Police this morning arrested an 18-year-old Central Dauphin East High School student who refused to leave a chartered bus parked in front of the High School’s main doors. The School Resource Officer, who is a Lower Paxton Twp. Police Officer, responded to a staff request to remove the student who was refusing school staff orders to exit the bus as the student did not have approval to go on the field trip. Upon arrival of the SRO, all students were ordered off the bus and all but Deandre Lee Holt of Lakewood Dr., Lower Paxton Township, complied. The SRO and a school administrator approached Holt who continued to refuse orders to disembark the bus. When the SRO attempted to place Holt under arrest, he violently resisted and was subdued only upon deployment of the Officer’s pepper spray. Holt is being charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault, one count of Resisting Arrest, one count of Disorderly Conduct and one count of Criminal Trespass.

Holt was arraigned this morning and bail was set at $50,000. He was taken to Dauphin County Prison when he was unable to post bail.
