Felony Battery on School Official / GHHS
A 14-year-old female arrived to GHHS late. While getting a pass to go to class, the attendance secretary instructed the juvenile to remove her lip piercing and place it in an envelope to be held at the office until the end of the day. The juvenile began being verbally abusive to the entire office staff in front of parents and students and was yelling obscenities. The juvenile was told to leave the office due to her causing a disturbance and intimidating staff and citizens. The juvenile left for a minute, then returned and began using profanities again. The principal asked her to leave again and she refused.
