A police officer working as a school resource officer in northern Mississippi twice stunned the mother of a middle school pupil with a Taser during a heated argument at the school Wednesday morning.

The woman — identified as Michele Lee Eaton, 39, of Saltillo, about 15 miles north of Tupelo — was arrested on disorderly conduct, public profanity and other charges, NBC station WTVA of Tupelo reported.

Lee County School Superintendent Jimmy Weeks said Eaton became upset and began to use profanity in the front office at Guntown Middle School, where she had gone to dispute an disciplinary matter involving her child.

Weeks wouldn’t specify what the child had done or what punishment was meted out, but he told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that it didn’t involve corporal punishment.
