From Kim Minugh:
The 15-year-old boy accused of assaulting the River City High School principal in October has turned himself in to West Sacramento police, according to authorities.
Earlier this month, authorities issued an arrest warrant for the 15-year-old, who is not being identified because he is a juvenile. The boy found out about the warrant, turned himself in Wednesday night and was booked into the Yolo County Juvenile Hall on a felony charge of battery with serious bodily injury, said West Sacramento police Lt. Tod Sockman.
Police say the boy was one of a number of students involved in fights Oct. 28 on the River City High campus. As Principal Stuart McKay tried to intervene, the boy punched McKay in the back of the head, and the principal fell to the ground, according to police.
McKay sustained serious head, neck and neurological injuries as a result of the assault, police said.
Multiple students were suspended because of the fights; the 15-year-old boy was expelled and has since moved, according to authorities.
