KEIZER, OR (KPTV) - Two boys were involved in a fight at a high school with a school resource officer Thursday afternoon, according to Keizer police.

A Keizer Police School Resource Officer was notified about a fight that was occurring near the gymnasium inside McNary High School, located at 595 Chemawa Road North, around 2:20 p.m.

The officer said there was a fight between two female students. Staff members broke up the fight, but hundreds of students had gathered to watch.

When the resource officer arrived at the fight, he identified two male students he believed were involved in the incident. While trying to detain the two males for further questioning, the resource officer became involved in a physical struggle with the males.

While the resource officer attempted to take the two males into custody, a staff member at the school requested help and several officers responded to the radio call.

No one was injured, according to police.

Both males were arrested and transported to the Marion County Juvenile Department, each charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with a peace officer.

We don't know if the kids involved here identify as male, female, or something else. It's really not the responsible thing to do here calling them girls or boys. Lets show some respect Fox. Get with the times.


High school kids, Fighting with police? Man, they need to get their minds right, right now or these dudes are gonna be spending alot of their lives incarcerated later on. You don't physically challenge authority like that in. You needn't comply with police but you also do NOT physically resist when it goes hands on, which generally it will if you refuse to comply. So, somehow these kids got a messed up messege and need to get it corrected or they will find life to be less than it could be had they only learned the lessons
