A fight on a school bus prompted police to get involved Friday at a Springfield school. The bus driver notified officials at Grant Middle School of the altercation on the bus as it headed toward Grant. Administration and school security met the bus as it arrived… and an off-duty cop working security at the school called for backup.
Springfield police say no weapons were involved and no one was hurt. Several students were taken into custody and released to their parents, but police won’t say how many.
District 186 says it won’t comment on actions taken against individual students, but says the incident was contained outside the building and did not affect students inside Grant Middle School.
