11 students arrested after fight

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) – Nearly a dozen Randolph-Clay High school students were arrested after a fight and likely will be kicked out of school.

Officials say 11 students beat up a school system security guard, but a school board member thinks that employee is at least partly to blame.

Board member Henry Cook wanted the school board to talk about it at a meeting last night, his motion failed.

He doesn't want the students expelled.

"I had the opportunity to review that tape, I saw where one of our staff member appears to provoke the entire situation, the SRO officer did his job, the security officer was out of line putting his hand on that child," said Henry Cook, School Board Member.

The students were all taken to a youth detention center, both the GBI and Randolph County Sheriff's Office are investigating.

After the students go before that tribunal, the school board will vote on whether to uphold or reject their punishment.
