Seven Disciplined for Lamar High "Riot"
Lamar High students and HISD officials are still having semantic debates over what constitutes a "riot," but something went wrong April 5, and the punishments are beginning to come down.
Seven students have been suspended, including two who received Class C misdemeanors for disrupting class, says HISD spokesman Jason Spencer.
"The investigation is ongoing," he says. "School officials are looking to take action against those who played an active role in helping cause the disruption."
HISD says there were a couple of fights and some horseplay that day, but students intent on mischief began tweeting about a "riot" at the River Oaks school.
