YORK – Charges are pending after three students were involved in a fight at Bruton High School Friday morning that was broken up by a York deputy assigned to the schoo using a stun gun.
Deputies responded to the school shortly after 10 a.m., according to spokesman Lt. Dennis Ivey of the York Sheriff's Office.
Three male students were fighting, and a school resource officer used the stun gun on one student after first trying to break up the fight verbally and physically, Ivey said. A different student involved in the fight was taken to the hospital after suffering an impact laceration to the face near his eye, Ivey said. No weapon was involved.
Ivey said officials take fighting at school very seriously.
"Fighting is not tolerated," he said.
The incident caused class changes to be delayed for about 15 minutes, but the school was not placed on lockdown, York County School Division spokeswoman Katherine Goff said.
Goff said she could not discuss punishments for individual students but said officials will follow protocol listed in the school code of conduct.
Bruton's principal notified parents about the incident through a phone message.
Vaughn can be reached by phone at 757-247-7870. Castillo can be reached by phone at 757-247-4635.
