Mount Vernon H.S. students head back to school after last week's brawls

Students at Mount Vernon High School headed back to class Monday for the first time since last week?s brawls and lockdown.

Extra police officers were on hand at the school. School, city and police officials have been working together to figure out what exactly happened and to punish the proper people. School officials say they put the building under lockdown after four separate fights broke out Friday and police were called in.

Mount Vernon police say 16-year-old Nichae Alston was arrested for hitting a police officer. Police also arrested a 16-year-old male student for kicking out a school bus window and a 15-year-old girl for disorderly conduct. Authorities say more arrests are possible.
