A fight involved five students at Howard High School a week ago ended with one being Tased by a school resource officer.
Shortly before 10:15 a.m. Oct. 27, five men began fighting on school property, said Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Janice Atkinson.
Four of the five students stopped fighting after ordered to do so, but one continued to act aggressively, even after school administration attempted to calm him.
The student used offensive language and acted aggressively toward students and teachers, Ms. Atkinson said. SRO Jamie Fields used his Taser to get the student under control.
The student was transported to Erlanger hospital to be checked by medical personnel, Ms. Atkinson said. The first four students involved in the fight were charged with disorderly conduct and transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center. Deputy Fields obtained attachments on the fifth student for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Ms. Atkinson said.
