Caught on camera: Student uses bat in parking lot fight

SUNMAN, IN (FOX19) - The Dearborn County Prosecutor's Office says they are looking into a video showing a fight that broke out in a high school parking lot last week.

The video shows a student beating another teen with a baseball bat at East Central High School.

East Central students declined to go on camera, but said the student who was hit with the bat has been released from the hospital.

The video shows one student fighting with just his hands, which is no match for the student wielding the baseball bat. Eventually the student drops the bat and the two fight by hand.

"Oh it just horrible," said Daryl Miller, who watched the video. "My brother was hit by a bat in the face about four months ago and it's amazing that they live through that. That boy look like he's going to live through that."

The school district released the following statement Tuesday:

"Due to student privacy laws, we are very limited in our comments regarding the situation.  When the fight occurred, a teacher responded within 90 seconds.  Immediately thereafter, three administrators were involved with the situation.  Law enforcement was contacted, and all student involved were given the stiffest discipline allowed by law."
