At least two Terry High School students were arrested following multiple fights on campus Tuesday, Rosenberg police said.
According to Assistant Police Chief Jarret Nethery, one student was charged with injury to a child and another was charged with assault of a public servant, or faculty.
“Unfortunately there were two physical disturbances at Terry,” Police Chief Jonathan White said in a tweet.
“Some false information is being spread about the incident. No weapons were involved. School was placed on (hold) until the end of day to ensure the safety of everyone.”
A strong police presence remained at the Terry campus until after school ended, Nethery told The Herald.
Video footage, available on The Fort Bend Herald website and Facebook page, shows students hitting each other at random while faculty members attempted to break up the fighting.
“We have a ton of video surveillance to look through,” Nethery said. “Kids who weren’t arrested could still be charged with disorderly conduct, or more seriously, a rioting charge.”
One officer was scratched in the hand with glass while trying to detain a student.
The injury was considered minor.
Students remained in their sixth period classrooms until school let out Tuesday, Lamar Consolidated ISD officials said in a written statement.
The statement also assured parents that students and staff were safe following the fights.
“During a hold, students remain in their classrooms and instruction continues as normal,” the statement read.
According to Nethery, Rosenberg PD will have a heavier presence at the school throughout the day Wednesday.
Terry High School is located at 5500 Ave. N in Rosenberg.
