CERRO GORDO, NC (WWAY) — A brawl broke out at a Columbus County high school this week. When it was all said and done, more than a dozen students were suspended.

Now they all face charges.

According to the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office, the fight started around 1:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon between two students at West Columbus high school.

A school resource officer says twelve other students then joined in. The school suspended all fourteen students for ten days. Today, they were all charged with participating in an affray.

Students we spoke with say the fight was between a group of friends who live in Chadbourn and another who live in the Cerro Gordo area. The students do not believe it is gang related, but when we spoke with Sheriff Batten earlier, he said deputies didn’t know for sure whether gangs are involved.

Students say the school resource officer used pepper spray to initially break up the students, however, the sheriff’s office could not confirm this.

You sound just like a little thug. Maybe you’ll be the next in line for a warrant. Know what I’m saying? The “RIGHT” side! (Of the law that is!)

When 12 or more are involved in a fight at school, that makes it newsworthy.

Is the newsroom so slow that you have to resort to making a school fight newsworthy?
