Montville school administrators appear in court amid 'fight club' investigation

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — A judge is allowing a Connecticut high school assistant principal charged with failing to report a student “fight club” to enter an accelerated rehabilitation program.

Montville High School Assistant Principal Tatiana Patten was charged with failing to report allegations that a substitute teacher organized “slap boxing fights” between students.

The teacher was fired in October 2017, but police weren’t notified for two months.

Patten’s attorney, Dado Coric, tells The Day the program is for first-time offenders unlikely to break the law and could lead to the charge being dropped after three months of probation.

Patten has been on paid leave.

Superintendent Brian Levesque and Principal Jeffrey Theodoss faced the same charges. Their cases were resolved last year.

Coric and attorneys for the others had argued their clients handled the situation properly.
