Mt. Abraham student charged with aggravated assault
BRISTOL — Bristol police arrested a student who they allege assaulted another student on school grounds this past Wednesday.
According to police, Bristol resident Jacob True Lathrop, 18, was a passenger in a car that pulled into the Mount Abraham Union High School parking lot on May 7. A student who knew Lathrop reportedly called out to him, allegedly making “teasing remarks.” Police said Lathrop got out of the car, grabbed the schoolmate by the neck and lifted the youngster off the ground.
A staff member who witnessed the incident commanded Lathrop to let the schoolmate go, police said, and Lathrop allegedly threw the other student to the ground.
Police arrested Lathrop the following day. He is due to answer the aggravated assault charge in Addison County Superior Court, criminal division, at a later date.
