Spalding High placed on “soft lock down” following fight; one student arrested


A Thursday morning fight at Spalding High School has resulted in the arrest of one student.

According to Sheriff Darrell Dix, the fight led to the school being placed on a brief soft lock down.

“There was a fight, and a student was taken into custody. The school was put on a soft lock down for just a few minutes by the administration,” Dix reported.

One student, who has not been identified, is currently in custody at the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office.

“The student has been transported here (to the SCSO) to be processed by our juvenile investigators and will be released by his parents,” Dix said.

Dix stressed that this morning’s SHS incident did not involve a weapon.
