Three Pikeville teens charged following school fight

Posted December 3, 2014

— Authorities charged three students they said were involved in a fight Wednesday morning at Charles B. Aycock High School in Pikeville.

The fight was brought to the attention of Wayne County Sheriff’s Deputy Kenneth Grice, a school resource officer, who found one student assaulting another. Grice ordered the student to stop the attack, but he refused and attacked another student, according to the sheriff’s office.

Grice used a Taser on the 15-year-old student to subdue him.

He was charged as a juvenile with engaging in an affray and communicating a threat. Investigators said he threatened a vice principal of the school.

The other students, ages 17 and 18, were also charged on a citation with engaging in an affray.

    Oh well. It is a shame. During my time in school fistfights resulted in detention and at worst suspension, but suspension was rare. Now you get a police record.

    You aren't allowed to defend yourself. Apparently, kids are supposed to just stand there and get the stuffing knocked out of them. Nice to see things haven't changed since my kids attended school in this county. Defending themselves was the one thing they never got punished for at home, even if they were punished at school. Had they thrown the first punch? All bets were off.
