Jairon Xavier Alston, 19, was arrested at the school after a school resource officer called other officers for help, officials said.

According to an arrest warrant, Alston assaulted another person "by punching him repeatedly while he was on the floor." Police charged Alston with assault and battery and second-degree trespassing on school grounds, both misdemeanors.

At the same time police were making the arrest at the high school at 2201 Spring Forest Road, officers were arresting Ivory Jade Alston, 35, at Millbrook Middle School at 3801 Spring Forest Road.
