READING, Pa. (AP) - The district attorney and police are investigating after video surfaced of two students fighting at an eastern Pennsylvania high school for children with special needs.

Alex Jackson, the father of one of the boys, tells WFMZ-TV (https://bit.ly/1qWU38v ) that he’s upset that staff members don’t appear to stop the fight at Northwestern Human Services School in Reading but let it continue for “four or five rounds.”

Jackson says, “The only thing they were missing was the ring girl.” He’s referring to women who hold up cards telling the crowd what round of a fight is about to begin.

School spokesman Kevin Feeley says two staff who were present are on administrative leave during the investigation. Feeley says the school has “zero tolerance” for these kinds of incidents.
