Belt-Whipping Incident Reported At Middle School 1-26-2011

Authorities say charges could be brought after apparent locker room horseplay between two groups of girls at a Bay City middle school led to some whipping others with belts.
Police said a 12-year-old girl was taken to a hospital with a cut to the head after being hurt Jan. 6 at T.L Handy Middle School.
Principal Matt Schmidt said members of the eighth-grade pompom and seventh-grade cheerleading teams were involved.
Schmidt said the students involved were disciplined.
Police Lt. Mark Turner said what began as roughhousing involving the 12- and 13-year-old girls grew out of control.
The police report lists three victims and two suspects. Four other girls were interviewed as witnesses.
The case was to be sent to prosecutors for review.
