VIDEO: A student at Northwest High School assaulted another student with a tire iron Friday morning. A school resource officer was then able to disarm the tire iron from the student, as seen in the video below.
The school’s principal sent the following message to families shortly after the incident:
Good morning, Northwest High School families,
This is Brandi Blackley, NWHS principal. This morning, a student assaulted another student with a tire iron on campus. Acts of violence will not be tolerated at our school, and the student involved will face both school-level and criminal consequences for the aggravated assault. We appreciate the quick actions of our faculty and staff to defuse the situation, and we are grateful to have School Resource Officers on our campus to rapidly respond to situations. We thank students who were in the area for remaining calm and following instructions from teachers and administrators. Please continue having conversations with your students about peacefully resolving conflicts and that actions do have consequences. Together, we can ensure Northwest High School is a safe learning environment for all students and employees. Thank you for your support.

I’m a current student and I want to clarify that both the men in the video that restrained the kid were teachers, the resource officers only arrived after he was disarmed by coach bedell
That wasn’t the SRO that was the NWHS wrestling coach that initially took the tire iron away from the student
