Covington students arrested after bus fight, allegedly spitting on deputies

COVINGTON, LA. - Deputies say four Covington High School students have been arrested after a fight on a school bus Thursday afternoon.

Two St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were on campus investigating an unrelated incident when they heard someone ask for police assistance over the intercom.

According to STPSO, the driver of a bus returned to the school after a brother and sister got into a fight on the ride home.

“As deputies entered the bus and attempted to remove the two students, other students became involved, yelling profanities, resisting the deputies and blocking the aisle,” a statement from STPSO said. “At one point, one of the students spit on both of the deputies.”

Darrell Tucker, 17, was booked for disturbing the peace and resisting an officer with force.

Paul Laurent, 17, was booked for disturbing the peace, resisting an officer with force and two counts of battery of a police officer.

Tucker and Laurent were booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

Two 14-year-old females were booked for interfering with a law enforcement investigation. The two girls were booked into the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.
