Two Naugatuck High students were arrested Monday after they allegedly got in a fight at school.

According to a police report released Thursday, the fight took place at about 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 27. The students, whose identities were not disclosed because they are minors, got into argument that turned physical, police said.

During the altercation a pair of $160 headphones were broken. 

Both students were charged with third-degree assault and third-degree criminal mischief. They were released to the custody of their guardians and are scheduled to appear in Waterbury Juvenile Court on Feb. 6.

$160 headphones in high school...society's doomed. Greed is good.

Bruce...The same thing hit me - $160 headphones in HS? Jeesh!

At first I had the same reaction. Then I decided to look at what the value is vs. what I think it is. So look back at when I was in high school, and todays $160 was worth $30. I was making a HUGE $99 a week part time. So on behalf of all us old folks, this is not that appalling! You know what is appalling? What happened to the good ol' fight after school that may or may not be broken up by a teacher, and then we went on our merry way. Police?? In my day, police would laugh and not even respond. The wussification of America continues…..

I have to agree SuperDave!

I've had my share of fights after school at NHS, never the cops where called. Bragging rights where the next day.

Agreed SuperDave! Back when we were in school, we maybe got a Saturday detention for fighting, not the cops!! And that's IF a teacher got involved. Most times it was the back path, a good old fashioned fist fight, and then to the park to play basketball! Not even parents got involved half the time... I say, no weapons, no cops! Let it be.

Yes but back in the day weapons were not used and lawsuits were not a plenty. Unfortunately schools se no longer the safe place they use to be.

Assault / the circumstances need to be known / bullying? / was one kid way bigger than the other / more info before judging?

I agree with super Dave. But back then we had constitutional America. Now it is Patriot Act America and the kids need to learn obey.

Even I as a female got into a few "scraps" at school. Most, actually more than half the time the person I fought with became a friend after. Mutuel respect was learned and earned. This sissification (word?) is ruining our children. Yes sometimes, rarely, someone get hurts, that's why all your buds came with you and it was stopped before that could happen. Now they are stopping Dodge Ball because a child could get hurt! Come on now...no wonder more than half the children are out of shape and just what are their children going to be like? Suck it up kids, get tougher, God forbid should we ever have to defend our selves in our own country, on our own land, half or more of our children are SISSIES,! And all you that like to argue with everyone else's post...have at it! I am hitting the ignore button, this is my opinion and I am entitled to it, as you are to yours.
