PEMBROKE, Mass. (AP)- Police say a Pembroke High School student caught by school officials with a bong in his backpack later drove his car toward a teacher trying to stop him.
Michael Muzyka was released on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty Monday to charges including assault with a dangerous weapon and marijuana possession.
Police say after officials found the bong Friday afternoon, a teacher tried to stop the student from leaving campus by standing in front of his car. Police allege the 18-year-old Muzyka accelerated, forcing the teacher to move aside to avoid being struck.
Police tell the Patriot Ledger a witness saw him tossing something from his car about two miles from campus. Marijuana was recovered at the site.
He was arrested when he returned to campus later.
