BREAKING NEWS – DOCTOR ATTACKED AT ROANE ACADEMY

Rockwood police officers, deputies with the Roane County Sheriff’s Department, and medical first responders were all dispatched to The Roane Academy this morning following an assault of a staff doctor by a juvenile that was housed there. The doctor was not transported to the hospital and was treated for his injuries on site. According to Rockwood Police Chief Bill Stinnett, several windows were broken during the scuffle. Stinnett added his officers responded to the academy today to settle things down while awaiting deputies to arrive, who are responsible for the security of the academy. The minor that allegedly attacked the doctor was transported to a juvenile facility in Midtown.

This incident today adds to a list of many that has taken place at the Roane Academy. In 2015, five teenagers housed there attacked four staff members, broke chairs and tore fire alarms off the walls.

The facility for troubled teens opened in January 2015.
