Officials say school rivalry prompted vandalism

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Assistant Superintendent Mitchell King said he believes the first game between rival schools West Harrison High and Harrison Central High on August 30 prompted vandalism at West Harrison High School.

According to King, four students from Harrison Central High School are believed to be behind the vandalism that left damage which has an estimated cost of $1,500 to $2,000 to clean up.

Deputies arrested four male teens on the charge of felony malicious mischief, according to Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara.

King alleges the teens vandalized the football field, concession stands, sidewalks, parking lot and painted buildings. Brioslara said the teens are also accused of spray painting trash cans and emptying the trash cans, and spray painting the stadium bleachers.

"Vandalizing is a cost to everyone involved. It takes time away and money away from the students, faculty and the public," King said. "Vandalism will not be tolerated and we will always do our best to find out who does the vandalism."

Brisolara said the teens were arrested and later released into the custody of their parent pending their appearance in Family Court.

"Can't say what will happen, but they will be disciplined according to our discipline policy," King said.
