WAUWATOSA, Wis. - There were more than fist fights in a hallway at a Wauwatosa high school. There were beat downs, as one Wauwatosa school board member told FOX6 News. That same school board member is now calling for an independent investigation into the fighting.
Parents are rightfully concerned after seeing several videos of fights in Wauwatosa schools.
Meier told FOX6 News parents and staff have been calling since last year about fighting.
"They’re devastated. Emotionally crushed. They’re desperate for help," Meier said.
There is video from Wauwatosa West High School last September. Then on Tuesday, Feb. 15, Wauwatosa police say there was a fight between a parent and students at Wauwatosa East High School.
In an email to parents, the principal said it started as an argument between a parent and a group of students. It escalated into a physical fight. The police were called. The principal said three people involved were arrested. The Wauwatosa police chief told FOX6 News five students were cited for battery.
