Sully Police District – A 26-year-old man has been arrested following an assault that occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 13 inside Stone Middle School in Centreville. The school resource officer responded to a classroom at 5500 Sully Park Drive where he was notified of an assault between a student and a security officer. The officer determined that a verbal altercation took place between the victim and a FCPS Security Officer, Lamar Hardy, of Centreville. The altercation escalated and Hardy assaulted the victim which led to them both falling to the ground. While on the ground, Hardy restrained the victim and brought him out into the hallway where he released him. Hardy and the victim both went back into the classroom until the end of the period when another school employee reported the incident. No injuries were reported to the officer.
The officer conducted several interviews and coordinated with the school administration. This afternoon, the officer obtained a summons releasable warrant for misdemeanor assault. Hardy was later arrested and served with his copy. No mugshot is available.
