It's that awkward moment when a high school fight involves the school principal. Thelma Jarrett, the principal of Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C., turned herself in to police on Thursday after she and two co-workers allegedly jumped a former employee. Apparently, the trio went in, kicking and punching the woman outside of a football game:
Jarrett and two other women, Donna Pixley, 52, and Bridgette V. Stevens, 42, are accused of hitting and kicking a former employee in a parking lot outside the high school football stadium in Northwest on Nov. 2.
The victim, Rashida King-Hicks, told D.C. police she heard Jarrett say, "Get her, bitch!" before the blows rained down on her.
King-Hicks told The Washington Examiner that she does not know why she was attacked, but had no further comment.
One witness alleges that Jarrett wasn't involved in the fight, and was actually trying to break it up. In the interim, she and her goons have been placed on administrative leave. How can she ever tell students not to fight when she was involved in one, and apparently the aggressor?
