A massive brawl broke out Wednesday afternoon outside of a high school in Macomb, Michigan between students from the L’Anse Creuse High School, where the fight took place, and another high school. Even adults were involved, some of whom may have shown up for the fight — which was reportedly instigated on social media — and at least one parent who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Amanda Wilhelm had arrived to the school to pick up her 15-year-old daughter when the fight broke out, but when she tried to intervene, she was quickly pushed into the fray and ended up in the hospital with a split lip and bruised ribs for her troubles.
“Students and adults doing this to another person. I was just trying to help. It was uncalled for,” she says.
As Wilhelm was knocked to the ground, her gun fell out. “I heard someone yell – there’s a gun! I crawled over and grabbed it immediately. I didn’t want someone using it,” she says.
For the record, Wilhelm did have a permit to carry the gun. Police have supposedly gotten the names of those involved and will be pursuing criminal charges.
