LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. – A fight between two female students in Columbia High School classroom has led to charges being filed by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.

The incident happened shortly after 1 pm Thursday, September 8, Columbia Borough Police said. According to the borough department,  they said a faculty member responded to the classroom, and attempted to separate the two students.

Additional faculty members and the School Resource Officers responded to the classroom and were able to escort the student away, police reported.

A video of the incident surfaced later on social media, which helped investigators file charges of Simple Assault and Disorderly Conduct filed against 18-year-old Mykeala Rivera.
