An early morning fight inside Westside High School on Thursday reignited later in the school parking lot, prompting charges against two adults.
About 7:15 a.m., a group of about 10 students -- boys and girls -- began fighting in the school cafeteria, said Chris Floore, the Bibb County school system’s spokesman.
“It was not a very long fight” -- about 90 seconds, he said, because school administrators and campus officers were close by. Floore said he did not know what prompted it.
The school went into “code red” lockdown during the school’s first block, from 7:40 a.m. to about 9:15 a.m., “to make sure everything was safe,” he said.
The students’ parents were called, and as some of the students and parents were leaving campus, the fight reignited in the parking lot, Floore said. Again, administrators and campus police were on hand.
Two adults were subsequently charged with disorderly conduct and disrupting a school. During the episode, one of the parents complained of chest pains and was taken to the hospital.
Floore said school officials would review video and investigate what happened before determining what punishment the students might receive. About 1,100 students attend Westside.
