Three Students Arrested At J.H. Rose

There's been yet another fight at a Greenville high school, the third there in less than two weeks.

Pitt County Schools spokeswoman Heather Mayo says three girls were arrested by Greenville police after a fight at J.H. Rose today.

Mayo says the girls, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, started fighting during lunch in the school's courtyard. Two resource officers were able to grab the teens and handcuff them without using pepper spray.

Last Wednesday three boys got into a fight where pepper spray was used to break it up. Two girls were arrested after pepper spray had to be used to break up a fight on November 14th at the same school.

J.H. Rose has since increased supervision during lunchtime when close to 1200 students are passing through the halls.

The school system says there could be additional arrests in today's disturbance.
