BANGOR, Maine (AP) – School officials are investigating after a video of a fight between two girls in a Bangor High School hallway showed up online.
Principal Paul Butler says the fight Tuesday morning was quickly broken up by teachers, who acted in accordance with district policy on student conflict. He says the brawl lasted less than a minute.
He tells WABI-TV that the fight remains under investigation. He says he has disciplined the students involved, including those who recorded the brawl.
The mother of one of the girls says her 15-year-old daughter was attacked and the dispute started with messages sent through Facebook over the last several days. She says the video posted on Facebook on Tuesday night shows other students standing around cheering.
