The details behind an in-classroom arrest of top Texas football recruit Jaylon Lane have been released to the public, and they are not pretty.

According to East Texas ABC affiliate KTRE, Lane — a composite four star defensive back and athlete recruit for Nacogdoches High — was arrested on charges of third-degree obstruction, misdemeanor B criminal mischief and misdemeanor A resisting arrest. What brought about those charges? The following rather disturbing incident between Lane and a teacher at the school.

An arrest affidavit released Monday states NISD officers were dispatched to a classroom on campus. It states Lane and another student, who is a juvenile, were in a confrontation with a teacher and Lane threw a calculator at the teacher, who was able to dodge it. Lane also overturned desks, according to the affidavit.

Throwing a calculator at a teacher and overturning desks is never a good idea if you’re trying to keep a clean name to earn a college scholarship. Yet what Lane did next may be even more ill advised: He juked away from police attempting to take him into custody, instead knocking over computers and other valuables and starting a mad dash to subdue the rather athletic former Oklahoma State commit. Yes, the police eventually did subdue him, but not  before he earned a resisting arrest count tacked on to his other transgressions.

We say former commit, because Lane announced via his Twitter account almost immediately after his release from prison that he was no longer planning on attending Oklahoma State. Instead, he’ll head back to the list of more than 30 scholarship offers that he had before his arrest and choose from whichever ones will remain loyal despite his legal troubles, if any will at all.
