Teen arrested after fight in Medina High lunchroom

MEDINA — One of three students involved in a fight at Medina High School on Wednesday faces a juvenile charge of resisting arrest, according to Medina police.

Medina Schools interim Superintendent Dave Knight said the 16-year-old boy resisted a police officer as he was being removed from an altercation in the lunchroom.

School officials would not say how the fight started or how many students were suspended, citing student privacy.

The incident sparked intense discussion on social media. The school board plans to discuss the district’s response to the community during a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the distance learning lab at Medina High School.
