VERONA (WKOW) — Police arrested three juveniles after they responded to three separate fights at Verona High School.
The Verona Police Department says officers were called to the school three times Thursday: 11:55 a.m., 12:55 p.m. and 2:46 p.m.
On the first call, police say a small group of people were fighting in the commons area of the school and a larger group surrounded them to watch and record the fight.
During the second call, officers were called to a report of a large fight in the hallway near the Performing Arts Center. Police say several juveniles were detained for fighting. After the fight, officers say several upset parents came to the school and “started yelling, threatening staff and creating a disturbance.”
During that disturbance, the Verona Police Department says one juvenile kicked the police school liaison officer.
One juvenile was taken to the hospital by his father after the second fight.
Later in the day, police were called back into the commons area after a third fight. Police say they encountered a “highly agitated group of juveniles.”
One girl was arrested after she punched a police officer.
Police arrested one boy who they believe was the primary aggressor in the fight. While officers were arresting this boy, police say another girl flipped over a table and was also taken into custody.
All three of the juveniles who were arrested were taken to the Juvenile Reception Center.
Fitch-Rona EMS helped one girl who was hurt while trying to break up the fight.
Investigators say a staff member had been battered during the fight and sought medical attention.
Police say charges are expected in each of these fights once the investigation is complete.
