Five students at Rose High School were charged after two separate fights this morning. Two school resource officers and a teacher were injured.
A spokeswoman for Pitt County Schools says the first fight happened around 8:25 a.m. in the cafeteria where between 100 and 150 students were eating breakfast.
Greenville police say it started out as two girls fighting, and a third joined in. As officers were trying to break up the fight, another student punched an officer in the jaw. Police say 16 year old Joshua Washington fled the school and is wanted for assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Three others are charged with fighting. They are 16 year old Teonna Reddick, 17 year old Brittany Sherrod and 17 year old Jocelyn Sherrod.
The other fight happened a short time later between a teacher and a student. Police say the student, 17 year old Natasha Blount slammed a door on a teacher, causing her to fall down.
Police say Blount resisted arrest and she herself had to be taken down to the floor in order to be arrested. She faces disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault charges.
