SYCAMORE – A 17-year-old DeKalb High School student repeatedly kicked a police officer Monday after hitting his girlfriend in the head at school, authorities said.

Devon Moore, of the 2400 block of Alpha Court, hit his girlfriend and tried to throw her to the ground about 7:40 a.m., court records show. A high school security officer held Moore back as the girl walked toward the school office, but Moore elbowed the security officer in the ribs and repeatedly shouted that he was going to kill his girlfriend, authorities said in court records.

A DeKalb police officer ultimately tacked Moore after he got away from the security officer, and Moore kicked the police officer about six times while the officer was on top of him, court records show.

Moore was charged with three counts of aggravated battery, which typically is punishable with probation or up to five years in prison. He is charged as an adult in the case.

Moore's bond was set at $20,000 Tuesday morning. He remained in DeKalb County jail Tuesday and is next due in court Thursday.

DeKalb High School Principal Tamra Ropeter said privacy laws prevented her from commenting on student discipline.
