Four high school students have been charged after an altercation outside a school that injured a police officer.

The Brainerd Dispatch reports that the Cass County Sheriff's Office was called to the high school in Walker because of a verbal altercation between several students. When deputies arrived, they saw a boy running from the school.

While the verbally and physically aggressive student was being placed under arrest, another teen came up behind the deputy and kicked him in the back. After a second deputy responded to place both teens under arrest, two girls physically fought the officers in an attempt to free the boys, the newspaper reports.

The juveniles face various charges based on their specific offenses. The most serious is fourth-degree assault on an officer leveled against the boy that kicked the deputy. The deputy may have suffered a possible fracture, according to medical reports.

The school district canceled classes for two days following the fight. Classes will resume Monday.
