Mother sues Glenpool schools after fight during walkout protest

"The mother of a Glenpool High School student is suing the school district after her son was injured in a fight during a student-led walkout in March," the Tulsa World reports.
Ashley Dent is seeking damages in excess of $75,000 from Glenpool Public Schools after her son, Chandler, reportedly suffered injuries in a fight on March 14 amid a student walkout. Chandler was reportedly taken to a local hospital, a school spokeswoman said after the incident. 
A 17-year-old was arrested on an aggravated assault and battery complaint by Glenpool police, but Dent claimed school staff members didn’t intervene when the confrontation broke out, according to court documents. 
Gregory LaFevers, Dent’s attorney, said the incident left Chandler with injuries requiring multiple surgeries. He said Chandler is awaiting a second surgery to continue repairs after his collarbone was broken in four places. LaFevers said the incident was captured on security footage and documented on social media.
