Police charged a 17-year-old Cardinal Gibbons High School student from Raleigh with attacking another boy with a dumbbell at the school Monday morning.
Logan Henry Washle of 7009 Millstone Ridge in Raleigh was arrested late Monday morning at the school at 1401 Edwards Mill Road, records showed. Washle was a quarterback on the football team last year, but is not on this year’s roster. He also plays baseball.
Police charged him with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
The youth who was hurt had head and face injuries and was taken to WakeMed Raleigh hospital, police said, but his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
The youth remained in the hospital Thursday, but his condition was being withheld at the request of his parents, a WakeMed spokeswoman said.
Police declined to say if they had established a motive in the case.
Washle was released on $50,000 cash bail Monday and had a first court appearance Tuesday. He is scheduled for another appearance Sept. 22.
