— Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies said they used a stun gun to subdue an E.E. Smith High School student Tuesday after he assaulted an assistant principal and a school resource officer.

Furman Lemule Evans, 19, of 2067 Corrina St. in Fayetteville, was charged with two counts of assault on government officials.

Deputies said Evans became upset when a principal tried to remove his girlfriend, who had been involved in the fight, from the cafeteria.

Evans was taken to the Cumberland County Detention Center.
