School: 12 students arrested after fight on campus

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) -

Wynne High School has responded to rumors about a fight Friday afternoon in a Facebook post.

Their post read:

“Dear Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Students,

On Friday during lunch a fight occurred on central campus between several students. As a result of the fight 12 students were arrested. Everyone involved are students at Wynne High School. The high school administration will be meeting with the parents of each student during the day on Monday and collecting statements from each in order to give them their due process before disciplinary action is taken.

The safety of all of our students is a priority. There will be additional staff on duty during the week as well as additional police officers. We plan to have a normal homecoming week with all regular activities taking place. Current postings on Wynne Topixs are not true and only serve to further disrupt the normal operations of the school district. I will give a written statement to the news media after the investigation is completed and all students have been afforded their due process rights.

We have a great student body at Wynne High School and the poor choices of a few should not reflect negatively on the whole group.”

Region 8 News is tracking this ongoing incident, and will pass any information along.
