Two different incidents at Summerville High School Dec. 9, resulted in three girls being suspended from school for Disturbing Schools and Disorderly Conduct.
At 8:20 a.m., a 14-year-old refused to get up off the floor of her classroom, using profanity toward the teacher when asked to get up. Summerville Police responded, emptied the classroom of students and asked the subject to get up.
She refused, was placed in handcuffs and escorted to the SRO’s office.
She was suspended and remanded to her mother’s Custodial Promise.
At 11:45 a.m., a fight broke out between two girls in the cafeteria. The SRO advised the students to stop fighting but was ignored.
The two 17-year-old girls were separated, placed in handcuffs and transported to the Summerville Police station where they were advised of their Miranda rights, charged with Disorderly Conduct, fingerprinted and photographed and released to their parents’ custody.
The school suspended both girls.
On Dec. 6, at 8 a.m. at Gregg Middle School, Summerville Police were called for a 14-year-old boy who was “cutting” three other male students in the courtyard. The subject was reported to have been running around with a small broken piece of Plexiglass cutting three students.
The students told police the subject had run up to them and cut them.
One had a laceration to his left calf, one to his left forearm and the third to the top of his left hand. All three were treated by the school nurse for small lacerations and returned to class.
The subject apologized for his actions saying he did not mean to hurt anyone. He was charged with Assault & Battery 3rd Degree, handcuffed and escorted to the SRO’s office where he was advised of his Miranda Rights. He has been suspended from school awaiting an expulsion hearing.
