Title (Max 100 Characters)
A 17-year-old Bibb County student spent Monday night in jail after campus police say she cut another student with a box cutter.
According to the district, at 11:45 Monday morning, two female students got into a fight at the alternative high school housed at Hutchings Career Center. One of the girls received what a district statement calls a superficial cut to the left side of her face.
The student with the box cutter was arrested and taken to jail.
Jail records identify her as Jacinta Deshazier. She is charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon on school grounds, and disruption of a public school.
The alternative schools search students and use metal detectors each morning, and have staff members monitoring hallways.
The district statement says Deshazier snuck in the weapon in her wallet wrapped in dollar bills, then later hid the weapon in her bra. The fight happened as students were returning to class after lunch.
According to the incident report, a teacher was keeping the girls separated when the responding campus police officer arrived in the classroom.
School officials did not identify the victim.
The district added more police officers at the school Tuesday. They say they are also hiring hall monitors at the three alternative schools.
