Hernando student accused of choking classmate

BROOKSVILLE -- A 13-year-old STAR Education Center student was arrested Tuesday after authorities say he choked a fellow classmate from behind and later ran off school property.

A Hernando County Sheriff's Office report said the boy attacked another student in a sixth-period class. The student's name is being withheld because he is a minor.

After the boy and the others involved were taken to the office, the report said the teenager ran away from STAR and fled south toward Hernando High School, where he was stopped by a deputy. He was arrested on three charges including battery, disruption of a school function and escape.
