6 Vicksburg students arrested after fight

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Six students arrested at Vicksburg High School Wednesday morning following a fight in the school's cafeteria could face expulsion.

School district spokeswoman Susan Mandarino tells the Vicksburg Post that a fight among more than two people can result in suspension for nine school days and a hearing before the discipline review committee for expulsion for one year.

School officials say initial reports that seven students were involved in the fight were untrue.

Officials say five boys and one girl were taken from the school about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday by Vicksburg police and school resource officers. Police Capt. Bobby Stewart says the six, ages 15 to 17, were charged with disorderly conduct.

Schools superintendent Elizabeth Swinford said the fight was quickly dispersed, and no weapons were involved.
