A disturbance at a Vicksburg high school is now under investigation by Warren County prosecutors.
Authorities say it happened when two people came on the campus of Warren Central High School Friday and handed out fliers aimed at the character of a young student.
Officials with the Warren County Sheriff's Department say they made two arrests in the case -- a 35-year-old woman from Tallulah, LA and a 52-year-old Warren County woman. Each of the women was charged with disrupting a school session, bullying or harassing behavior in a public school and disturbance of the peace. All of the charges are misdemeanors.
Sheriff Martin Pace said the women are out on $1,500 bond.
"They had been on campus unauthorized and had distributed some leaflets in the school building as well as in the parking lot area that contained derogatory language towards a 14-year-old student," Pace said.
The nature of the fliers is not being disclosed because this case involves a student. The names and mug shots of those arrested aren't being released because it's just a misdemeanor, but authorities say this is a serious matter.
"This is completely unacceptable behavior. You just don't come onto a school property addressing derogatory comments written or verbal towards a child," Pace said.
Authorities say they don't believe the papers ever made it into the hands of students, because they were scattered on the grounds and in hallways, and school officials scooped them up while students were in class. About 100 fliers were dropped.
