Woman accused of instigating fight at Richmond Academy is arrested

A woman accused of encouraging a fight between two Academy of Richmond County students April 17 surrendered to authorities Wednesday.

Laura Leah Davis, 31, is charged with criminal trespass, simple battery, simple assault, reckless conduct and disrupting a public school, according to Patrick Clayton, the chief of the county school system’s Department of School Safety and Security.

Clayton said Davis “involved herself in an affray in front of the school,” a fight that was captured on a cellphone video and posted online. At one point, Davis pulled one student off another so the second student could attack, Clayton said.

The two students involved were not injured, Clayton said.
