Student recorded video of fight at Charlotte school where 7 students were arrested
Rochelle Benton and her son, Landon are the only parent-child player combo within Charlotte's Rollin' Hornets wheelchair basektball organization. Landon has been active on various youth teams since age 6, while Rochelle joined the co-ed adult team three years ago and recently helped launch the Rollin' Hornets' first all-women's team. Both were born with tibial dysplasia, a congenital birth defect that led to both of them having their legs amputated above the knee when they were about a year and a half old.
More than 10 students were taken into custody after a large fight broke out Thursday afternoon at West Mecklenburg High School. Police say six students were arrested and charged with public affray due to their direct, physical involvement in the fight.
A hacker’s 1 p.m. deadline to pay $23,000 passed Wednesday, and Mecklenburg County has not decided whether to pay the ransom for a cyber-attack that “paralyzed” the county. County manager Dena Diorio, at a 2 p.m. news conference at the Government Center, said third-party security experts believe the attack by a new strain of ransomware called LockCrypt originated from Iran or Ukraine. Forty-eight of about 500 county computer servers were affected.
