High school teacher, student involved in fight

LOWER LAKE – A teacher and student were involved in a physical fight at Lower Lake High School on Wednesday, the school's principal reported Friday.

"There was a confrontation between a student and a teacher and it required discipline for both parties,” said Lower Lake High School Principal Jeff Dixon.

The confrontation between the male teacher and his male student took place during class. Dixon said neither was injured.

Dixon said he could not reveal the name of either of the parties.

School Resource Officer Carl Miller responded to the incident and spoke with the student, said Dixon, who himself discussed the issue with the teacher on Thursday.

Miller did not return a call from Lake County News seeking comment on the situation and information on whether there was a police report filed.

Dixon said the teacher is still employed, but he would not say if the student had been suspended.

Now in his second year as principal at the school, Dixon said he has encountered no other incidents there like the Wednesday fight.
