SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A dozen Caddo Parish students are now charged in connection with a brawl on a Shreveport school bus Monday afternoon.

The bus driver told police the fight broke out on the bus shortly after 3:15 p.m. on the ride home from Hamilton terrace Learning Center. Seeing that she was near the Shreveport Police Department on Texas Avenue, the bus driver pulled right in and notified police on the spot.

Also booked into the Shreveport City Jail were 19 year old Malik Speed, of the 3500 block of Milam Street in Shreveport, charged with one count of resisting an officer, and 17 year old Marquis Lindsey, of the 2000 block of Vivian Street in Shreveport, charged with one count of simple battery.

Officers also arrested nine juveniles ranging in age from 14 to 16, including six males and three females, for a variety of misdemeanor charges ranging from simple battery to interference with an officer. All of the juveniles were issued juvenile summonses and released to concerned adults.

Two students were treated for minor injuries, requiring medical attention from the Shreveport Fire Department.
