MILWAUKEE –Milwaukee police arrested 11 people after multiple fights broke out at Madison High School at 81st and Florist Friday afternoon.
Police say the fights broke out inside the school and officers on the scene called for help.
One officer was kicked in the face by an 18-year-old female student, after which police deployed an electronic control device to stop the threat.
Eight people were arrested for disorderly conduct; three for resisting/obstructing an officer.
Two police officers were hurt but did not require medical treatment.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett issued the following statement in relation to the fights at Madison High School:
“Today’s violent incident at Madison High School and yesterday’s after school fight at Washington High School are inexcusable. Students arrested and charged must be held accountable by their families, Milwaukee Public Schools and the courts. All of us, but in particular, parents, family members and MPS must be loud and clear in stating that there is no tolerance for the behavior exhibited over the last two days.”
