Video: Insane Riot Breaks Out

Springfield, Florida — An insane riot in a high school courtyard was caught on video, and the violence got so bad that the school’s resource officer was forced to call the local sheriff’s office.

Bay County Sheriff Tommy Ford’s office received a call from Rutherford High School’s resource officer at around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, September 27th, asking for help.

The Springfield Police Department was also called, and their officers were the first on the scene. When they saw how many students were involved in the riot, they immediately called for backup.

“We received a call over the radio from our school resource deputy here at Rutherford that he needed assistance with a large fight in the courtyard,” Sheriff Ford said. “Indicated there were about 50 students that were fighting.”

The sheriff’s office, the Panama City Police Department, and the Parker Police Department all responded to the scene soon after the calls for backup.

According to Sheriff Ford, no students were injured in the fight.

“We had a deputy that received some minor injuries to his hand but that’s the only injury to my knowledge,” he said.

After the fight was finally broken up, sheriff’s deputies were informed that there may have been a girl on campus with a weapon, and the school was immediately put into lockdown. A room-to-room search of the campus was conducted by deputies, who eventually found the girl.

“We were able to find a female that was described as a female with a pink hoodie,” Ford said. “We were able to find her in a classroom and upon a search, we were able to find a firearm in her waistband. It turned out to be an airsoft or some type of pellet rifle.”

The girl was arrested and may be facing a felony charge, along with eight other students who are facing potential criminal charges, including battery on a law enforcement officer and disruption of school.

Sheriff Ford has announced that they will be conducting interviews with the students to uncover everyone’s role in the fight.

“We have a zero-tolerance for this. I have been in contact with Superintendent Husfelt as well as Chief Jones and we have zero tolerance for this type of behavior,” Ford said. “Everybody will be taking a ride to the DJJ.”

A total of 16 students were arrested in connection with the riot.
