Though it seems like a good deed, some parents might consider this interference with their parenteral rights. The only time teachers can remove a child from school grounds is with the direct permission of the parents, for obvious reasons. I believe that is true for all public schools in the US.

Something doesn't sound right here. The student is supposedly a high-school student, yet is 20 years old?! Also, if you've already been warned, then any prudent person would contact the school principal / superintendent, and either get permission or instructions how to handle the situation. There's information missing here, I just can't put my finger on what.
