Reports of local student arrests for participating in walk out are false


Reports circulating on social media alleging Spalding High School students who participated in today’s school walk out are being arrested are false.

According to Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix, his agency has made no associated arrests.

“No, nobody has been arrested. No arrests have been made. There was a protest over there. They all walked out. Nobody has been charged with anything. The majority of students went back into the classroom,” Dix said. “There were six that chose not to go back into class. Three of them eventually went back into class and the other three, their parents came to pick them up, and not a single one has been charged with anything.”
