BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A 17-year-old accused of making threats against a teacher and a high school was tased outside of the school Monday after he allegedly tried to run from deputies.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported Anthony Myles, a student at Northeast High School, ran away after being placed under arrest for terrorizing. According to the arrest report, he threatened to blow up a teacher's vehicle and the school.

The teacher reportedly told deputies Myles made the threat after he was "put out of the library for acting out." The teacher added Myles was then called down to the front office and "had calmed down and was no longer acting out."

However, when deputies arrived and attempted to place Myles under arrest for terrorizing, he "took off running in an attempt to avoid being arrested."

Deputies said they chased Myles and when he allegedly refused to comply with verbal commands, one of the deputies used a taser fired his taser, which stopped him in his tracks.

Once in custody, deputies asked Myles about his threatening comments. According to reports, he told them he did not make any threat to blow up the school, but someone should.

Myles is charged with assault on a school teacher, communicating false information and terrorizing. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. His bond is set at $8,000.
