CORTLAND, Ohio - A Lakeview High School Senior is out jail in time for graduation, but will not be allowed to attend the ceremony this weekend.

18-year-old Dalton Bunker was freed from the Trumbull County Jail on Friday after appearing in court and paying a $2,500 bond.

Cortland Police arrested Bunker in the Lakeview High parking lot on Thursday after he allegedly shouted obscenities as children were leaving the school.

According to the police report, the alleged tirade began after school officials informed Bunker that he would receive his diploma, but would not be allowed to attend commencement ceremonies Sunday afternoon.

Lakeview school officials could not be reached to explain why Bunker was banned from the graduation ceremony.

Police say that Bunker shouted obscenities at school Principal Richard Stevens, and the arresting officer, who says that the teen also struggled during the attempt to place him under arrest.

The arresting officer says he found a switchblade knife in Bunker's backpack.

Bunker is charged with possessing a weapon on school property, carrying a concealed weapon, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
