With their first day on the job behind them, Alice High School COPS in School officer Jason Childers and Supervisory Officer Lt. Cosme Castillo wrote six citations for disorderly conduct and arrested and detained two female students for assault, one involving a AHS assistant principal.

Before lunch, Castillo said one male juvenile was cited for disorderly conduct after using profane language on school grounds.

Later Tuesday morning, a second incident occurred. A female student walked up to another female student and started to argue, officials said.

The argument escalated and the female began to fight with the other student. She was charged with assault and resisting arrest.

She was detained by Childers and transported to an area juvenile detention facility.

After lunch Tuesday, Castillo and Childers dealt with two fights that occurred on campus.

The first involved three females at the high school and after the altercation ended, all three girls were cited for disorderly conduct.

The second fight also involved two female juveniles.

Castillo said Assistant Principal Rolando Gonzalez was attempting to break up the fight when he was struck by one of the juveniles.

Both students were cited for disorderly conduct, and the female who struck the administrator was detained on charges of assault and transported to an area juvenile detention facility.

"It was a busy first day," Castillo said.
