Police: Middle school fight stems from Facebook

ANDERSON, Ind. (WISH) – School security officers had to hold four girls apart to keep them from fighting each other Monday.

Four teenage girls, ranging in age from 13 to 15, were involved in a physical fight at Highland Middle School on Jan. 26, according to Anderson Police Department spokesman Joel Sandefur.

24-hour News 8’s news partner the Herald Bulletin reported that police believe the argument initially started with comments on Facebook. The content of the Facebook messages is still unclear.

Sandefur stated that no one was seriously hurt in the fracas.

The girls were arrested and face possible juvenile charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and battery.

Three of the girls were released to the custody of their guardians, and the fourth girl was transported to the Madison County Youth Center.

Highland and Anderson Community Schools were not available for comment on Tuesday.
