TUCKER, Ga. —
A school resource officer is recovering from surgery after being injured during a school fight.Four students at Tucker High School have been suspended over their involvement in the fight.Students who witnessed the fight said it broke out last Wednesday in the rear of the school near the bus lanes.“It was scary. That’s why I backed up. I was like, I don’t want to get hit,” student Adia Reid said.According to the police report, school resource officer Jarvis Brown and a couple of teachers and staff members tried to break up the fight.“A police officer got hit. The police officer who works at the school, he got hit a couple of times. He was taken away in a stretcher,” Reid said.The report said Brown twisted and broke his right ankle, which required surgery.“I’m glad there wasn’t a weapon and I’m glad it didn’t happen inside the school,” a parent said.Doctors said it will take several months for Brown to recover. A school spokesperson said the students were suspended for 10 days. All four also face criminal charges related to the fight.
