Violence is to be expected inside a stadium on a football Friday Night in Covington, not outside on the street.
But thugs ruined the evening on Sept. 3 following the Newton and Eastside High schools game at Sharp Stadium. Covington police reported multiple calls concerning fights, possibly gang-related.
The violence sparked an outcry on our Facebook site from parents, students and readers, and rightfully so.
Police say they are ready tonight and are doing what it takes to keep fans, and the kids, safe.
Officers are still seeking the culprits behind the Sept. 3 assaults. Witnesses to the fights can send an e-mail to email@example.com or contact the office at (770) 786-7605. All tips can be given anonymously. Witnesses can also come into the police office to speak with detectives.
