MOKANE, Mo. -- A 15-year-old South Callaway High School student was found in possession of a small knife that was displayed toward a staff member Friday at the Mokane school, according to a Callaway County Sheriff's Office release.

The sheriff's office was called to the school at 9 a.m. Friday for a juvenile matter. The student physically assaulted a school administrator, though not with a weapon. No other students were present.

As deputies attempted to take the juvenile into custody for the felony offenses, the juvenile resisted, and two deputies were assaulted before the student was subdued.

The juvenile was released to the custody of the Callaway County Juvenile Offices with charges of unlawful use of a weapon, armed criminal action, resisting arrest and assault, according to the release.

The investigation is ongoing, and further charges could be following.
