GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Video from a fight at Buchholz High School this morning is circulating on social media. The video shows several girls fighting while a school district employee tries to break up the fight. One of the girls punches the employee before turning her attention to another girl. As other students try to break up the fight, one girl’s shirt is stripped off, leaving her in shorts and a bra while she continues to try to get past administrators who are trying to stay between her and the other girls. Administrators and a School Resource Officer eventually separate all the students. The video lasts about a minute and a half.
Buchholz sent the following email to parents: “You may be aware of a fight that occurred during class exchange this morning that involved three students. School staff and our School Resource Officers quickly broke up the fight. During the fight, one student brandished a taser, but didn’t use it. All students involved will receive consequences per the Student Code of Conduct and charges from law enforcement as appropriate.”
