Parent shot with Taser after argument over dress code

GREENFIELD – A parent upset over the dress code was escorted out of Greenfield High School and then shot with a Taser Wednesday afternoon.

According to Greenfield police, Jason D. Whitehouse came to the high school around 2 p.m. to speak to a school official about his daughter, who had been in trouble for violating the dress code.

When the discussion became heated, a school security officer escorted Whitehouse out of the building. According to police, Whitehouse pulled away from the officer after they’d left the school and turned aggressively as if he might hit the officer.

Another officer shot Whitehouse with his Taser. Police said Whitehouse was taken to a hospital after the incident. He’s expected to face several charges including resisting arrest.
