A fight at Lakeside High School Thursday resulted in the arrest of a student.
Columbia County authorities charged Dewoyne Lyn Oliver Lewis, 19, of the 400 block of Old Evans Road in Evans, with simple battery.
As a classmate walked away from Lewis following a “heated argument” and some alleged shoving in a hallway at about 3 p.m., Lewis “ran up behind him and punched him in the face,” according to a sheriff’s office report.
Following the punch, the victim told deputies that he fell to ground and doesn’t remember what came after.
Footage caught from a surveillance camera in the hallway showed that Lewis then got on top of the 17-year-old boy and kept hitting him.
Lewis was released Friday from the Columbia County Detention Center on a $1,600 bond.
