Pawtucket Officer Takedown

A Pawtucket, Rhode Island, official says the school resource officer cleared of wrongdoing for his use of force during the arrest of two juveniles could potentially return to the school where the incident occurred.

State police and Pawtucket police concluded Tuesday that Officer Jared Boudreault acted in keeping with his training when applying what they called a "takedown maneuver."

The report concluded that no criminal charges were warranted.

Public Safety Director Antonio Pires said Wednesday that Boudreault returning to Tolman High School is "certainly in play."

Pires says he'll ask Boudreault about his career plans and talk to school officials.

Pires hopes a decision will be made by Jan. 1.

Boudreault couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

He's currently assigned to a patrol unit.
