PALESTINE, TX (KLTV) - A Palestine High School student gets Tased after allegedly biting an Anderson County sheriff's deputy.

Christopher Lyles, 17, allegedly bit an Anderson County deputy working security at Thursday night's Van-Palestine football game.

According to authorities, the deputy tried to calm him down, but Lyles got angrier.

The officer tried arresting him, and Lyles allegedly bit him on the arm.

Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor says he supports his deputy's decision to use the Taser.

Lyles was arrested for resisting arrest and assaulting a public servant.
