Policing in Schools: 7 arrested, 2 injured after fight at Annapolis High


Sgt. Clyde Boatwright joins Two Way Talk to discuss policing in schools

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say seven students were arrested and two were taken to hospitals after a fight involving a knife broke out at a high school.

Anne Arundel County Police spokeswoman Lt. Jackie Davis says Annapolis High School was locked down after the fight, which stemmed from a neighborhood dispute.

She says the injuries, which included cut and puncture wounds, were not considered life-threatening.

During a transition between classes, Davis says school resource officers spotted the fight at the top of a stairwell and rushed to intervene.

She says a teacher alerted the officers that a student had a knife and he was quickly disarmed and taken into custody.

Davis says police made seven arrests and there may be more.
