According to a release, five teens were arrested and one was injured in two separate fights at LaFollette High School Tuesday.
Police say three teenage girls got into a verbal confrontation during a lunch period Tuesday around 12:45 p.m. This then escalated into a physical fight outside the school.
As LaFollette staff and the Educational Resource Officer were dealing with the fight, they heard there was another fight between three teenage boys in another part of the school.
Additional officers responded to the school, and several teenagers were arrested, according to a release.
The three girls were arrested for disorderly conduct. Both were later released to their parents. Two 16-year-old boys were arrested in connection to the second fight. One was arrested for substantial battery, the other for disorderly conduct.
A 15-year-old boy that was taken to a local hospital for treatment has been released.
