Mecklenburg deputies break up PVHS brawl, investigate golf cart thefts

SoVaNow.com / January 15, 2014
Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Deputies were called in Friday to quash a fight between two Park View High School students.

According to a statement released by Mecklenburg County Sheriff Bobby Hawkins, two teachers sustained minor injuries trying to halt the struggle between two 16-year-old male students. As a result, school officials called in deputies to break up the fight.

A school nurse assessed both students once the brawl ended, but the teachers refused medical treatment.

Both students were placed on diversion through the Juvenile Court Services Unit. The Sheriff’s Office did not know if the students were also suspended or expelled from school, saying, “That’s a decision for the school board.”

The Juvenile Court system’s diversion program is “sometimes used for first offenses and may involve the juvenile or juveniles and parents attending an educational program offered through the court,” according to the Virginia Attorney General’s office.

In an unrelated matter, the Sheriff’s Office has received at least 24 separate reports involving the pilfering of golf cart batteries. The trail of larcenies extends from the Epps Fork area off Townsville Road, south of Clarksville, to Boydton. The first known theft occurred during the last week of December. The most recent one took place Sunday, January 12.

At this time, the Sheriff’s Office has no suspects, but Investigator Mark Claiborne is actively investigating. Hawkins asks that anyone with information to please contact Claiborne at 434-738-617.

Several churches that recently suffered the loss of all or parts of their heating and air condition units are also located in or around the Epps Fork area of Virginia.

Hawkins reminds county citizens “to watch out for your neighbor and if you see any suspicious vehicles or persons please call 911. It is important too, if you can get a vehicle description or license plate number that would greatly assist in the investigations.”

If I see any of those black niggers do anything in my neighborhood, I'm going to shoot them. Getting rid of the blackies is the only way to solve the problems.
