RACINE — A school bus fight reportedly ended when officers from the Mount Pleasant Police Department ordered one student to drop a two-by-four he had “armed himself with,” according to a criminal complaint.

Police were dispatched for a report of kids fighting near Carpenter Avenue and Durand Avenue shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday and arrived to find a 17-year-old student holding a two-by-four, according to the complaint. That student was charged Wednesday with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct by use of a dangerous weapon.

The dispute reportedly started after the 17-year-old got on and off the bus several times and was told by another student to make up his mind because he wanted to go home, according to the complaint.

What can you teach a 17. Year old who thinks he knows everything. Not everything starts at home. He was old enough to what the right decision was but he chose otherwise.
