Fight at High School Over N-Word Caught on Tape


1 comment


18-year-old Christopher Sibley has been charged with assault and suspended for school after a fellow student caught him giving a beatdown to a 17-year-old junior in the halls of Copley High School. It all started when the junior admitted to using the n-word in reference to Sibley. He didn't take too kindly to the vulgar language and decided the offender needed a physical reminder not to use the word again.

Of course, a fellow student taped the assault on his cell phone, posted it to YouTube, and police got involved as the school gave up the names of the kids involved.
