2 Hopkinsville Students Charged With Assault

Two students have been charged with assault after two incidents at Hopkinsville High School. 

The Christian County Sheriff’s Office said the first incident happened last Wednesday. A 17-year-old was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and third-degree terroristic threatening. 

On Monday morning, another incident was reported, which led to the arrest of a 16-year-old. That juvenile was charged with fourth-degree assault. 

Investigators did not elaborate on either incident. 

“Our school resource officer took appropriate actions the day of the events and those students were removed from Hopkinsville High School,” the sheriff’s office said on Facebook

Authorities also asked people not to share videos of the incident. 

“While we appreciate everyone sharing the information with us, which gives us a better idea of what occurred, we are asking that everyone please consider not sharing the video on their social media pages, out of respect for the victim and their family. The video depicts some disturbing footage, and we only ask you to imagine if it were your child. We can't make you stop, but I'm sure the family would appreciate it. Just something for you to consider.”
