Berlin Police investigate video that shows student throwing punches

BERLIN, Wis. (WBAY) - Berlin Police are investigating a fight at the high school that was posted on social media.

The video, which we are not sharing because it involves minors, shows a student repeatedly punching another student in the head.

The incident happened April 18 at noon.

"High School Administration was immediately made aware of the incident and is working with the Berlin Police Department to ensure that the matter is thoroughly investigated," reads a statement from Berlin Police.

The Berlin School District released this statement to Action 2 News:

"The Berlin School District takes this incident very seriously and is working cooperatively with local law enforcement in its investigation so appropriate disciplinary action can be taken. Because this involves minors, we cannot comment further nor provide identification of the two students involved.

It is important for the public to know that this is not who we are as a district nor is it reflective of the vast majority of our students who care about each other and about their education."

When the investigation is complete, Berlin Police will refer their findings to the Green Lake District Attorney's Office.
