On Wednesday morning at a school in Louisiana, a big fight sent one officer to the hospital, leading to several arrests.
Officials in Baton Rouge said that 10 people were arrested at East Baton Rouge Readiness Alternative School after fights broke out between students and parents all over the school grounds.
The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office says that EBRP School Board Security responded to a significant campus disturbance in the courtyard outside the school’s gym shortly after 8 a.m.
When the security staff saw about 200 students and parents fighting, they asked for more help.
Officials said a Baton Rouge police officer was seriously hurt and taken to the hospital with a broken hip and cuts on his head.
Three students were charged with assaulting a police officer, which is a felony.
WAFB says that only the officer was taken to the hospital, but other injuries were also reported. One was a sheriff’s deputy in East Baton Rouge Parish who was punched in the face.
During the fight, the police said they found a loaded gun in the grass in front of the school.
Ten people were arrested by the departments that came to help. Those who were caught were between 15 and 18 years old.
In a statement released after the fight on campus, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System said that the war started between two female students and grew to include more students and adults who were not students.

People on campus texted the adults about the first fight, which is how they learned about it.
The school system said it would continue to work with the police to look at the evidence and figure out what happened. It will also work with the police to make the schools safer.
The NAACP of Baton Rouge also said that both the people who got into the fight and the police officers who were seen on video hitting students who were in the war were wrong.
Students in grades 9–12 who have been kicked out of or suspended from other East Baton Rouge Parish public schools go to this school.
The director of communication for EBR Schools said the school is still open, but security has been tightened.
