Racially charged fight disrupts high schoolFeb 26, 2009
The initial fight started during lunch when a white student used racial slurs towards a black student, according to police.
School staff responded immediately and ended the fight, Moses with the school district said.
"This was a fairly isolated incident between two students," Moses said. "The minute that altercation occured, it was responded to immediately by campus security and North administration."
Both students contacted their families after the fight. The 15-year-old white boy's family arrived at the school before police.
Police and school officials say the father approached three black students who were not involved in the earlier fight.
Both police and school officials say the father started using racial slurs towards the student.
"That was heard by a number of North Eugene students," Moses said, "who quickly banded together and displayed their feelings about racist remarks being made on the schoolg rounds, which is clearly a violation of school policy."
Police say the mother and father assaulted two of the three youths, while a third adult family member got in a fight. Police say no weapons were used, only fists.
