Police Investigating "Lindbergh Fights" Videos
School principals have identified some of the students in the videos and will be meeting with those students and their parents.
St. Louis County Police are investigating videos posted online over the weekend showing Lindbergh students fighting off-campus.
The videos have been removed from their original postings, but the original YouTube account, called Fights314, is still active. The Facebook account that posted the videos, called "Lindbergh Fights," was also shut down.
An anonymous parent emailed Lindbergh school board members and news outlets about the videos.
"As a concerned parent who has interest in Lindbergh High School and its students, you should all be aware of what has been posted on the internet this evening," the parent wrote in the email. "An immediate investigation is imperative!"
Principals have identified some of the students in the videos and will be meeting with those students and their parents, according to Beth Johnston, spokeswoman for the school district.
The school resource officer for Lindbergh is looking into the incident, police said.
Police spokesman Rick Eckhard, who has not seen the video, said he received multiple calls about the video.
“We are looking into whether a crime was committed in St. Louis County,” Eckhard said.
No victim has come forward, and no police report has been written. The fights did not occur on school grounds or during school hours.
The school district is helping police identify students in the video.
"There's not much we can do about it, but what we can do is help the county police department identify these young men," Johnston said. "Certainly we dont condone the fighting."
A two-part series titled "Lindbergh Fights" on YouTube does not involve Lindbergh School District students and does not take place in Missouri.
