A student caught up in the midddle of a brawl between Rich Central and Rich South high schools provided a first-hand account of the melee.
The Rich South student, who asked that her identity not be revealed for fear of retaliation, was said things got out of hand almost immediately.
"Some were on cars, others were fighting. It was just chaos. I was trying to walk away and a teacher was pushing me back into trouble," the student said.
Ten students face charges and several were injured after Rich Central students were bused to Rich South following a bomb scare. After somebody pulled the fire alarm, fights broke out between the two schools outside the building.
The student who spoke with NBC 5 said she was one of the students who was charged, accused of being physically and verbally abusive to a teacher, even though she says she was trying to get away. She was suspended for 10 days.
"They didn't write up an incident report, only concerned with what happened to the teacher," the student said. "They didn't ask anybody anything, they just charging people."
The girl's mother, Sherry Bader, blames the school administration for putting the students on the same campus in the first place, which lead to her daughter getting a black eye, bruised nose and concussion.
"My daughter almost got killed and you didn't even address that," Bader siad.
The Rich Township School Board agreed Tuesday to conduct an independent investigation into the incident.
