Police have arrested a second man in connection with a fight at East Wake High School.
Khalil Breece-Melvin, an 18-year-old Zebulon resident, was charged with misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct in a school. The fight that led to the charge happened Sept. 18.
Zebulon police made the arrest on Saturday, and Breece-Melvin was being held under a $4,000 bond.
According to Wake County arrest records, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office arrested Breece-Melvin on Sept. 12 for failure to appear on a previous charge of disorderly conduct at a school.
The sheriff’s office arrested Tremaine Deshon Jones, 20, of 4031 Northstone Drive in Raleigh immediately after the fight and charged him with second-degree trespassing.
At that time, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said it wasn’t clear whether Jones was part of the fight. The arrest warrant for Breece-Melvin said the fight was between “two rival neighborhoods.” The sheriff’s office and the warrant did not mention any possibility of the fight’s being gang-related.
It also didn’t provide details of Breece-Melvin’s role in the fight.
The incident resulted in a wave of student withdrawals from class as the school community broadcasted its happening on social media.
On the day after the fight, the line in the main office to check out students wrapped around the office and into the hallway.
School officials said 545 students checked out early.
This charge is Breece-Melvin’s second charge of disorderly conduct in a school. In December 2013, he was charged with the same offense and simple affray. It location of that incident is not clear.
In July 2014, the court dropped charges against Breece-Melvin of cocaine possession and maintaining a dwelling for use, sale or storage of a controlled substance.
Breece-Melvin will appear in court on Monday., Sept. 29.
