Several students arrested at Hall High after fight breaks out in cafeteria


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – According to police, several students were arrested at Hall High School on Tuesday after a fight broke out in the cafeteria.

When officers arrived, the school security guards and staff were reportedly still trying to break up the fight while some students stood on lunch tables heckling the crowd.

Police said during that incident, the crowd of students were asked to go to the hallway and outside. A short time later, another fight broke out, and an officer reportedly had to use pepper spray to break up the students.

In all, seven students were taken into custody, and only minor injuries were reported from those involved.

Police said a window in the cafeteria was also broken.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - October is National Bullying Prevention month, so all month long THV11 is partnering with Little Rock Family magazine to provide information and resources.

The goal is to educate our viewers about the problem of bullying and inspire them to get involved in the movement to prevent bullying where they live and all year long.

Little Rock Family editor Heather Bennett joins us with preliminary information to get us started:

1. First off is understanding what bullying is, and it's been around since the beginning of time. It's that brow beating and teasing, that continuing behavior.

2. You have to identify is this an isolated incident of bad behavior or bullying. Is your child just acting ugly or something? Or is it truly bullying? Is it repeating and calculated? Bullying is almost sinister and malicious.
