(KSL News) Orem police have broken up plans for a fight and conficated two handguns from a high school student.
The trouble started Monday afternoon at a junior high school in Lindon, where at least four Orem High students met a junior high boy and they all agreed to a fight this Friday.
Apparently the dispute began when the junior high student insulted the girlfriend of the high school student.
Lt. Doug Edwards/ Orem Dept. of Public Safety: "Anytime you talk about weapons or weapons are involved, that's taking a huge step forward, and that is going to create a lot of attention on our part. We'll devote a lot of attention to anyone who makes those kind of claims, regardless of their age."
Police confiscated two handguns, which were un-loaded. And they arrested four high school students on charges of possessing a weapon on school grounds.
