Four teenagers, three of which are from North St. Louis County, were charged with misdemeanor trespassing and peace disturbance following a Feb. 8 fight at St. Charles West High School.
Those charged include:
- Trevon Dyer, 17, of St. Charles
- James Tillman, 18, of Ferguson
- Sheila Holman, 17, of Ferguson
- Chevayon Applewite, 17, of St. Louis
According to a release, Dyer, a student at St. Charles West High School, propped a door in the small gym of the school along with another student who is a juvenile. Tillman, Holman and Applewhite, none of whom are students in the district, entered the building and then were involved in a brawl with students from St. Charles West High School.
The three students not from St. Charles are reportedly from the Ferguson-Florissant School District.
The fight started on social media, Marion said. A student from St. Charles West and a student from the Ferguson-Florissant School District kept talking about whom could beat up whom, he said.
Misdemeanor charges carry a maximum punishment of one year in jail and a fine of $1,000. The defendants were issued a summons to appear in St. Charles County circuit court on April 10.
The St. Charles School District suspended 11 students from the school district for their involvement in the fight.
