3 students charged, homecoming delayed after Henrico HS fight

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Three students have been charged with disorderly conduct following a fight at Henrico High School.

The fight broke out around 4:10 p.m. Thursday between two students. While trying to break up the fight, another student refused to cooperate with police, so a School Resource Officer used a Taser to stop the fight and called for backup, according to police.

The 17-year-old male was taken to the hospital and released, as is police procedure when a Taser is used. He and the two students involved in the initial fight have all been charged with disorderly conduct.

No one else was injured. Police have extra officers at the school.

School officials say homecoming activities, scheduled for the last week of October, have been postponed indefinitely. That includes a pep rally that was scheduled for November 1. School staff say they are still unsure if the dance and parade will happen.  Staff told students they want to be sure they can behave before they set a new date.

"That's not to say every student in the school is responsible, that's certainly not the case but together they can learn to make good decisions and be accountable for their actions," says HCPS spokesperson Andy Jenks.

Police also corrected their statement from Thursday and now say no officer was assaulted during the altercation.
