A student was taken to the Egelston Children Hospital Aug. 10, apparently after a "play fight" turned into real punching and pushing. A Decatur police report said:
A student in the nurse's station told the school resource officer that a second student struck him with a closed fist.
The second student said the first student called him names. He said he pushed the first student away but the student punched him. He said he pushed the student into the bleachers.
Three witnesses said the second student wanted to "play fight" and was swinging his fist at the first student. Two witnesses said the first student was pushed into the bleachers. One witness said the first student was pushed into the bleachers, threw a punch and was punched back.
Everyone agreed the second student helped the injured student to the water fountain. No charges were filed. The condition of the injured student was not known.
