MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Officers have spent the last two days driving to Kirby High School.
Wednesday morning, officers came to the school responding to a fight between two students on a school bus. Sources say an argument turned violent between a student and her boyfriend. The girl reportedly suffered a head injury.
"You're going to have those one or two teenagers that act up from time to time," an anonymous neighbor said of the recent violence linked to Kirby High School.
Tuesday afternoon, officers arrested a 20-year-old man accused of fighting with several high school students.
According to the police report, Darrin Dean was fighting with Kirby High School students in the middle of the intersection of Kirby Road and Raines Road. The fight did not happen on the school's campus or during school hours.
Dean and others also started jumping on cars making it hard for drivers to maneuver around the crowd.
When officers approached Dean, they said he started cursing at them and standing like he wanted to fight.
Dean was eventually placed in police custody and charged with obstructing a road, inciting a riot, and disorderly conduct.
The neighbor who did not want to be identified said it's time the few troublemakers straighten up.
"Getting them to understand that you just can't go around destroying other people's property, fighting, and all these unnecessary things that they're doing now."
