17-Year-Old Charged After Girls Fight at Roosevelt High School
A 17-year-old student is charged with a felony after she and a younger girl reportedly got into a fight Tuesday afternoon at Roosevelt High School.
Officer Sam Clemens says police were called around 2:30pm after the 17-year-old and a 14-year-old girl were seen fighting in a school hallway.
They were separated and the 17-year-old was taken to the school office, but Clemens says she took a swing at the police officer, punching him in the chest or a shoulder.
Clemens says the 17-year-old was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center on a charge of simple assault on law enforcement--a felony--and disorderly conduct for fighting at school.
The 14-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct and turned over to her parents.
Neither student was injured and Clemens says police don't know why the girls were fighting.
