According to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office, school board security officers were the first on the scene shortly after 8 am after responding to reports of a major campus disturbance. The security officers called for backup after discovering the number of persons involved, which expanded into involving around 200 students and parents fighting in separate campus-wide brawls.

Videos of the chaos inside the school’s gym show student fighting, chairs getting thrown, and students being cuffed by law enforcement.

One video shows an officer pushing a student into a brick wall while attempting to arrest the teen. Police said the teen had punched the officer in the face and tried to bite him. The teen was among those charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence.

The NAACP released a statement in response to the circulating video calling for ‘immediate action’ against the officers seen striking students and condemning parents who participated.

Officials have not yet determined what triggered the massive brawl at the school, which enrolls students who’ve been previously suspended or expelled from other district schools.

One witness told WBRZ the brawl erupted when a girl who wasn’t a student at the school and her mom showed up to fight another girl — and that it escalated from there.

‘What (police) walked into was a series of fights, and they began making arrests,’ said East Baton Rouge School District communications director Ben Lemione to WIBW.

‘We just want to stress to the public that we’re not going to tolerate this as a district, this is a real shame.

‘The fact that people from the outside are coming onto our school campuses and conducting in this kind of behavior is really concerning for us and law enforcement.’

Students were allegedly locked inside the gym during the fight. One responding police officer sustained injuries, including a broken hip and head lacerations.

The school enrolls students previously suspended or expelled from other schools in the district.

Five other students were arrested for disturbing the peace, including an 18-year-old girl who was arrested on counts of unlawful disruption of the operation of a school and resisting arrest, and a 17-year-old girl hit with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. Three other students were arrested and charged with battery on a police officer, a felony.

All of those arrested were students between the ages of 15 and 18. None of the parents or other adults at the scene were taken into custody.

Police stated that they found a loaded gun outside the school during the fight; however, there is no indication that it was fired.

The East Baton Rouge Parish School System said in a statement that it is cooperating with authorities to review the evidence and investigate what led to the school-wide conflict.
