On April 30 at 10: 40 a.m., three students became involved in a fight inside St. Charles High School. The fight drew numerous students who began instigating and challenging each other. Staff members intervened and attempted to gain control, but several students remained uncooperative. Additional officers were called to the school to assist. The school was placed on a hold status until the students were dispersed and the situation de-escalated. The students involved will face disciplinary sanctions from the Charles County Public Schools and charges are pending. Anyone with information is asked to contact PFC Watkins at 301-609-3282 ext. 0721.
