High school fight involving teens and grandma leads to charges

By  | 

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Two juvenile girls have been charged following a fight outside of a Frankfort high school. Charges are also pending against the grandmother of one of the girls.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office became involved in the investigation after video of the fight started circulating on social media.

The investigation started after a fight between two teen girls in the parking lot of Western Hills High School. The fight happened on Monday afternoon after school was dismissed.

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton says his office obtained several different videos of the fight. He says his school resource deputy was in court when the fight happened, but as soon as they saw the videos, the department started an investigation.

Police filed charges against the two girls on Tuesday morning.

Western Hills High School principal Greg Roush says the other adult on camera was a teacher who was attempting to stop the fight.

Sheriff Melton says they occasionally deal with fights at high schools, but not ones involving adults. "Very unusual to encourage or to even be a part of it. The right thing to do is to take your granddaughter or notify the school administration and let the adults deal with it," he said.

Sheriff Melton says that because the case involves juveniles, he can't get into specifics about the charges the two teens are facing.
