Three arrested after disturbance at ETHS


Three students were arrested at Evanston Township High School this morning after several girls got into a fight at the school.

Evanston Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan says the school resource officer was able to detain the three while others involved managed to get away.

The three taken into custody are all juveniles and will be charged with disorderly conduct, Dugan says.

In addition one of the three will also face charges of resisting arrest and of possessing a stun gun on school property.

Dugan says she didn't use the stun gun in the fight, but it was found on her after her arrest.

Dugan says there were no injuries from the fight, but one girl was taken to the hospital as a result of an asthma attack.

The incident happened about 9:20 a.m. on the first day back in session after spring break.
