Officer S. Craven was treated for bumps and bruises at WellStar Kennestone Hospital, police spokesman Officer David Baldwin told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was released within hours, WSB-TV reported.
Principal Leigh Colburn assured parents in a phone message that the incident involved no weapons and no serious injuries, and no classes were disrupted, the AJC said.
Administrators quickly broke up the initial lunchroom fight. Craven, serving as the school’s resource officer, got involved when he separated a student from an administrator during a subsequent heated discussion, the MDJ said.
That student’s brother then jumped Craven from behind, and both brothers hit the officer before they were quickly pulled off him, Baldwin told the MDJ.
