7 Annapolis High students arrested after school fights

November 18, 2006|By Staff reports

Seven students were arrested and charged with disruption of activities after two fights at Annapolis High School yesterday, Anne Arundel County police and school officials said.

A brawl broke out at about 7 a.m. before classes began, and four male students and one female student were arrested, police said.

A second fight broke out about noon, during lunch, police said, and two male students were arrested.

The names of the students were not released.

No one was injured and weapons were not used in the disputes, which were the result of neighborhood rivalries, police and school officials said.

"It appears that the issues this morning started in the community last night," said Bob Mosier, spokesman for the school system. "The superintendent has been very clear we will absolutely not tolerate community problems being brought into schools and being made school problems."

Students are off next week, but Mosier said there would be an increased security presence - though it might not be police - when students return on Nov. 27.

In September, police arrested 18 students after four fights erupted over two days. After the previous brawls at the school, community and school system representatives met to discuss the issues.
