Filming a High School Girls' Fight Lands Student in Trouble

Allen Allan — yes, that's his name — is a junior at North Olmsted.

When he saw two girls fighting in school recently, he did what any other curious, red-blooded male witnessing a catfight would do: he began filming it.

Allan then posted the video to Facebook, which is where his trouble with his school began.

Now North Olmsted, who had already suspended Allan, wants to expel him. Students rallying to his support are wearing "Free Allen" shirts around school, which isn't sitting too well with administrators.

According to NewsNet5:

"He told me I made North Olmsted look bad by putting the video up on the Internet," Allan said.

Allan was suspended for 10 days, so he'll miss school and basketball tryouts. His mother said school officials recommended expulsion.

"He did do wrong for posting on Facebook, but at the same time, 10 days is a little harsh. This is affecting his grades and basketball — and we were hoping he could get a scholarship or partial scholarship to help him go to college," said his mother, Amal Allan.

"Obviously I was wrong putting the video up. It's my bad, but I think the punishment was too severe and so did all my friends," he said.

Allan and his parents will be fighting the expulsion at a hearing with the school next week. No word on if his parents will wear "Free Allen" shirts during the meeting.
