Dunbar student injured Friday in fight

A Paul Laurence Dunbar High School student was injured during a fight at a football game Friday night, Fayette County school representatives said.

The fight began between two Dunbar students, ages 14 and 15. Then, a 17-year-old male, who had been expelled from Fayette County Public Schools and should not have been on any school district property, reportedly entered the fight and injured the 15-year-old.

The 15-year-old was taken to the hospital on Friday and released Sunday. Details of his injuries were not released.

The school district filed a complaint alleging second-degree assault and possession of a weapon on school property against the 17-year-old, who allegedly carried brass knuckles. He also was charged with criminal trespass in the third degree.

The 14-year-old was charged with assault in the fourth degree and will face administrative disciplinary consequences through the school district.
