Police investigation into Wichita 'saggy pants' incident provides detail

An investigation by police says officers were justified and reasonable in actions against a student during a disturbance at the high school this past April. Jonathan Villarreal, 17, said he was walking to the bus with some friends after school, when school resource officers confronted him about his "sagging" pants, pulled him to the ground, used a Taser on him and broke his arm. Villarreal denied he was resisting the officers. Lee said in a statement today that Villarreal had been yelling racial slurs at a group of students.
