Two Paris Teens Arrested after Violent Fight Posted to Facebook
Two teenagers from the town of Paris have been charged in connection with an alleged fight that was recorded and posted to Facebook.
In the video, students are seen beating up on other students. At least two teens could been seen punching and kicking another student. The video can be viewed here, but we warn you it contains strong language and disturbing images.
Out of an abundance of caution, and as a way to make other students feel safe, the Oxford Hills High school and middle school went to remote learning for Tuesday and Wednesday. School officials say the attack happened on the 'Viking Trail' which runs parallel to Main Street in Paris, behind several businesses.
Paris Police told WCSH-TV that two males have been arrested in connection with the incident, a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old. Their names have not been released, because they're juveniles. Police continue to investigate and say more arrests are possible.
According to the Oxford Hills Middle School website, classes will resume on Thursday. Oxford Hills is designated yellow by the Maine Department of Education, which means a hybrid model is recommended, with a combination of in-class and remote learning. Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School is starting its hybrid model on Monday.
