Metro Nashville Police officials are expected to charge ten Antioch High School students with aggravated rioting for a disruption during National Walkout Day.

Police obtained petitions to charge nine of the ten students with aggravated rioting in juvenile court: two 17-year-olds, two 16-year-olds, four 15-year-olds, one 14-year-old, and one 18-year-old.

A warrant was issued for the tenth, an 18-year-old, also charging the student with aggravated rioting.

Officials said their disturbance at the school Wednesday caused an estimated $500 to $1,000 damage. 

The next day, students conducted a second protest that was peaceful and respectful to make up for the other students' actions.
