10 students arrested after gang-related fight at Scott High


A gang-related fight at Scott High School led to the arrest of 10 students, police said.

The fight, which started at about 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, happened in a school hallway, according to a police incident report.

Toledo police Sgt. Joe Heffernan said none of the students were injured. He added that, “some of the kids had some neighborhood associations that led us to believe that it may be quasi gang related.

“... It was just kids acting up,” the sergeant said. “Some of the kids, some of the friends were from one neighborhood and some from another neighborhood.”

He added that it doesn’t appear that any of the involved students were “gang leaders.”

The police incident report states the group of involved students have been involved in previous “gang-related disturbances” both at and around the school.

Juvenile Prosecutor Lori Olender said four of the students were ordered to be held in community detention.

Last month, five students were arrested after a “large fight” broke out at Bowsher High School on March 23, according to court documents filed in Toledo Municipal Court.

Police today also arrested Pamela McDonald, 53, of 1434 Leith Dr., and charged her with one count of assault upon a teacher; disrupting school activity, when she — a mother to some of the involved students — showed up at the school “shouting profanities and demanding that her kids be released,” court documents state.

Ms. McDonald allegedly refused to leave the property.

She was released from the Lucas County jail on her own recognizance.

Comment from school officials was not immediately available.
