Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report that two area teens have been charged with assault following a fight that occurred Monday morning at Indian Lake High School.

About 9 a.m. Monday, deputies were dispatched to Mary Rutan Hospital to speak with Tyler Watson, 15, of 11690 Williams Drive, Lakeview.

He reported that he had been involved in an altercation at the school that morning with Justin Converse, 16, of 11287 Mohawk Path, Lakeview.

Tyler was being treated at the hospital for injuries sustained in the incident. 

Deputies interviewed both Tyler and Justin, and also talked with other students who witnessed a fight that occurred in the school lobby.

Summonses for assault have been issued to both Tyler and Justin.

Both boys were issued three-day out of school suspensions for fighting, per school board policy, Indian Lake Superintendent Pat O'Donnell said. Mr. O'Donnell said the fight apparently began over the weekend and spilled over into Monday morning.

Mr. O'Donnell credited alert building administrators who were able to quickly break up the fight.
