Chesterfield teenager arrested in Pennsylvania

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Chesterfield teenager has been arrested in Pennsylvania after police say he tried to shoot another man back in February.

19-year-old Anthony Holmes moved to Pennsylvania after the incident. He even enrolled in a Pennsylvania high school before his arrest.

Holmes is sitting in a Pennsylvania jail tonight, facing a variety of charges ranging from assault and battery to use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

This all started back in February when Holmes was attending a Super Bowl party along the 2800 block of Brampton Way in Chesterfield County. Police say another man at the party offended his own girlfriend and then got into a fight with Holmes that eventually spilled out onto the street.

That fight eventually spilled over to Cogbill Road and that's when police say Holmes opened fire. No one was hurt during the shooting. Police say the victim was then assaulted outside a Shell station on Cogbill Road.

Following this incident, Holmes moved more than 300 miles north to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and enrolled as a senior at Liberty High School.

Holmes was a student at Meadowbrook High School until the end of February, just a few weeks after police say he was involved with this shooting.

So far no date has been set for when Holmes might be brought back to Virginia or when he'll make his first appearance in court.

Holmes' academic and disciplinary records were sent to his new high school in Pennsylvania. Chesterfield schools say Holmes was not expelled, but he withdrew from Meadowbrook High School.
