A student who was tasered at an Eastern Carolina high school Tuesday morning is being investigated.
Hyde County School Superintendent Gregg Todd tells WITN News that a DARE officer tasered the student on a sidewalk outside of Mattamuskeet High School around 11:40 a.m.
Todd says the student is an 18-year-old senior at the school. The superintendent said he could not provide any more details on the circumstances behind the student being tasered.
The Hyde County Sheriff's Office says information on this case can only come from Sheriff David Mason, and he is not in today.
