Students facing charges after fight at Meriden’s Platt High School

MERIDEN — Several Platt High School students are facing charges after a fight Wednesday, police said.

Lt. Sal Nesci, police spokesman, said officers were called to the school at dismissal time, about 2:30 p.m., for a report of a fight. Four students were charged with assault and breach of peace, one student was charged with breach of peace, assault and interfering with an officer and one student was charged with breach of peace, Nesci said.

The students are juveniles so their names will not be released and their cases will go to juvenile court, Nesci said.

Nesci said one teacher was punched during the incident and a staff member sprained a wrist.

The fight started between two female students, and expanded to include four other students, a mix of boys and girls, Nesci said. It was a physical fight, Nesci said.
