Fight after May 14 soccer game lands three students in jail

A fight between football players from Starr’s Mill and McIntosh high schools after the soccer game May 14 led to the arrest of the three involved and significant injuries to one. The fight occurred in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Catholic Church adjacent to McIntosh High School.

Arrested late last week were 17 year-old Starr’s Mill rising senior and football player Jeffery Green, 17 year-old Starr’s Mill graduating senior and football player Jack Thomas and 18 year-old McIntosh graduating senior and football player Antwan Green, according to Peachtree City Police spokesperson Capt. Rosanna Dove. All three were charged with affray, Dove said.

Dove said the incident occurred after the conclusion of the soccer game.

“A fight involving several attendees occurred in the parking lot of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, which is adjacent to McIntosh High School,” Dove said. “An investigation into the incident concluded that the fight started after several heated conversations between students of both schools.”

Dove said that warrants were issued at the conclusion of the investigation and the three were transported to the Fayette County Jail.

Dove added that two of the students received minor injuries while a third received significant injuries and was later transported to a medical facility for treatment.

Fayette County School System spokesperson Melinda Berry-Dreisbach said school officials were aware of the incident and had already addressed the matter.

"We don’t condone this type of behavior on or off campus. Our students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately and follow all laws and regulations at all times," Berry-Dreisbadh said. "We encourage our students to take time to think about their actions before they do something that could potentially put their future goals at risk. The schools have taken disciplinary action against the students."
