"Parents who receive information regarding criminal activities on campus are asked to contact their local police department or school administration. Displaying videos and photos of illegal activity on social media goes against the law in Louisiana. Violators of the law could be sentenced to a fine of up to five hundred dollars, to a maximum of six months' imprisonment, or to both. "
The two students involved in the fight face criminal charges, police said.
A fight between two students from Acadiana High School sent a child to the hospital.
The student, who was not identified because of his age, was examined at the hospital and released, police said.
The two unidentified students were fighting at Acadiana High School when a student hit his head against a concrete bench. This student was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. A spokesman for the school system at Lafayette Parish stated that a school administrator had boarded the ambulance with the student and that the parents had met them at the hospital.
Students involved in the altercation have been sanctioned in accordance with the guidelines of the Lafayette Parish School System and the School Resources Officer will determine if any quotes should be issued, said school officials.
A video of the incident is circulating on social media; KATC decided not to use the video because it involves minors.
Scott's chief of police, Chad Leger, tells us that two students are facing criminal charges; because they are minor, he will not publish their names. One faces a charge of disturbing the peace while fighting; the other a second degree charge, said the chief.
