Newark school fight ends with theft of police car
Holy cow. Somebody needs to confiscate this kid’s copy of Grand Theft Auto IV.
A fight involving scores of Newark high school students ended after one of the teens stole a police vehicle and drove it into two parked cars, authorities said this afternoon.
Witnesses said responding officers took two students into custody, but one managed to break away. Meanwhile, the other student got a hold of the keys to a marked police car, which he drove for about a half-block before ramming into two cars parked on the south side of the street, Detective Todd McClendon said in a release.
One of the cars that was hit jumped a curb, striking two students who were taken to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to McClendon. Witnesses said the victims were a 10-grade girl and an 11th-grade boy.
The teen who took the car has been arrested, McClendon said.
