DETROIT -- Two parents were arrested Friday for allegedly beating up several students, teachers and the principal at a Detroit school, a school district official confirmed.
The mother and father of a student at Parker Elementary on the city's west side arrived at the school Friday to follow up on an alleged fight involving their child, according to Jennifer Mrozowski, a spokeswoman for Detroit Public Schools.
"The parents grew upset, the situation escalated and the parents allegedly assaulted the principal, teachers and some students," she said.
The mother and father were arrested on disorderly charges and an investigation is continuing. No serious physical injuries were reported.
"While this case is being investigated, DPS wants to make clear that we will bring down the full force of the law against anyone who comes into our schools, disrupts teaching and learning and threatens or harms our students or staff," Mrozowski said.
