MIDVALE, Utah — A fight broke out between students at a Hillcrest High School football game Friday, causing false rumors of a weapon being present.
A school resource officer went to break up the fight, attention and crowds were drawn, officers said people shouting “gun!” made crowds run and leave.
According to officer Melody Cutler, one of the students “wanted to fight the officer,” but the officer simply pulled out his taser, and it was “end of story” when the student saw the taser and backed off.
There were no guns or knives, and no one punched the officer in the face.
Cutler thinks one student may be referred to juvenile court for a misdemeanor.
