Authorities have issued arrest warrants for four Harding High School students accused of assaulting a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools employee and leaving her with a concussion.
The alleged assault, which was against staff member Inez Albright by several students at the west Charlotte school, was caught on cell phone video then shared on social media. Albright, a Behavior Modification Technician, said the trouble started when she was telling students to get back to class.
Albright said she called for backup but it didn't arrive before the students attacked her. She told WBTV on Thursday that she suffered a concussion, has some swelling and is in pain.
CMS officials confirmed Friday that warrants had been signed for four students for assault on school personnel. Officials said three female students and one male student were involved.

WBTV obtained warrants for two of the four students, a 16-year-old who we are not naming because of her age, and 18-year-old Shaquila Hill.
The officials said the teens’ parents have been given the opportunity to turn their children in.
