What started out as a fight between two high school boys turned into an
incident that required police involvement. News reports indicate that
an off-duty officer working at the school was injured while trying to
break up the fight that eventually involved over a dozen students. After
being kicked in the head, the officer used pepper spray on one group of
students. At the same time, another fight broke out amongst a group of
teenage girls. When fellow police officers and EMTs arrived on the scene,
the two fights were finally broken up. A total of eleven students were
brought to area hospitals to be treated for exposure to the pepper spray.
Five students were arrested by the end of the afternoon, three girls and
two boys. Their ages and names are not being released to the public at
this time. They are likely to be charged with
juvenile crimes, the nature of which will be revealed later this week say local law enforcement
agents. If your son or daughter was charged with a violent crime, take
