Battery charges filed in off-campus fight between Prairie Ridge freshmen

CRYSTAL LAKE – An off-campus fight between two Prairie Ridge High School freshmen that was caught on video has resulted in battery charges for one of the juveniles involved.

McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said the fight occurred Monday afternoon and apparently started over a girl. No major injuries were suffered in the altercation.

The mother of the juvenile who suffered the strikes to the face and midsection said the incident occurred outside the other teen's house where that teen's younger brother is believed to have filmed the fight.

She said the footage circulated among some students at the high school.

Jeff Puma, spokesman for Community High School District 155, said school officials are monitoring the situation but no immediate action was planned as it happened off school property and was not school related.

Zinke said the case would be handled in juvenile court.
