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.
