MARRERO, La. (CITC) — More than a dozen students were arrested after multiple fights broke out at a Louisiana high school Thursday.
The "series of fights" began in the cafeteria of John Ehret High School, a spokesperson for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office told Crisis in the Classroom (CITC). It is not immediately clear what prompted the altercations.
Members of the community shared several videos of the fights on social media. In some of the videos, more than a dozen teenagers can be seen hitting and shoving each other while other students stand on tables to watch.
At least three police officers can be seen attempting to restrain students. The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office told CITC that a total of 14 students were arrested "for a variety of charges," including "disturbing the peace and battery on a police officer."
