Police charged a dozen students of Hunters Lane High School with disorderly conduct after a lunchtime brawl in a school courtyard.

A fight between two students grew as others joined in, but no injuries were reported after school resource officers broke up the scuffle. Police said one girl and 10 boys, all ranging in age from 14 to 17, face charges in juvenile court.

Two of the students were also charged with resisting arrest. Police issued a citation to an 18-year-old as well. Detectives are looking into any gang involvement with the fight.

The charges come at the same time as disciplinary hearings are being held for 11 other Hunters Lane students accused of smoking marijuana before a football game last Friday.

What is going on at that school? Why are they constantly in the news for fighting?

There are probably a few families who love their children and want the best for them but cannot afford to get their kids out of Hunters Lane. I am sure that a lot tears flow from the eyes of those parents.

We have two show ;pieces in the Davidson County school system, MLK & Hume Fogg. Then we have in descending order Hillsboro,Overton,Antioch,McGavock,Whites Creek,Pearl-Cohn,Stratford,Hunters Lane,Hillwood,Maplewood and Glencliff.

I have no idea what a East Literature is?

Walter Herron, If I had a child in the Nashville school system,I would move from there so fast I would get a speeding ticket. There is no leadership,no structure,no accountability for their actions,in fact there is total lack of control. In the pursuit of being politically correct and not violating their rights,Nashville has surrendered control of the nuthouses to the inmates.

Is the NAACP really sure it wants to get involved with these pot-smoking thugs?

To richgoose:
I don't understand your order you put the high schools in? What is it sopposed to be representing and where did you get your statictics? How are you basing your information?
To noputpa: Where are you getting your information from as regards to total lack of control? Not saying the school system is free of problems, no where near , but as a Metro school employee, I know it takes a lot more to it than the administrators, teachers, etc. that we have in the schools to make these students into the people they should be. It starts at home first and then the community and city as a whole needing to take action in making things better for our students. Our students come to the schools carring so much baggadge from the streets that it is almost impossible for teachers and administrators to effectively do our jobs. Remember, "it takes a village to raise a child", so do fingerpointig and do nothing to help solve the problem.

TRUMPETMAN........Why don't you rate them?

I am betting if you looked at the homes and family of these kids you would then find the problem. If there is no structure in the home then what else do you expect at school. The School System needs to expell every damn one of them and then maybe the parents (if there is two in the home) would get the message that the schools are not going to put up with this type of behavior. Just because those pot smokers were football players doesn't need any special treatment. The NAACP needs to keep the hell out of the situation and that is part of the problem with the NAACP wanting to step in where there is blacks involved, but you never hear the first word when it is all white kids.
