A 17-year-old girl was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after she allegedly dragged another girl with her car during a fight at San Antonio High School. At around 2:40 p.m., the suspect pulled up to two other girls walking on College Avenue, got out of the car and told one of the girls to stop texting her boyfriend. Another girl nearby saw the argument and told the driver to leave the girls alone. At that point, another person in the car got out and punched the witness twice in the head. The driver and the other suspect got back in the car to flee the scene, and the witness held on to the doorframe of the car. She was dragged about 100 feet, sustaining several scratches to her legs, hands, forearms and feet, Lt. Ciszek said. She was transported to Pomona Valley Hospital for treatment. The driver later went to the police station to talk to an officer about what happened, and she was arrested and transported to Los Padrinos Juvenile Facility in Downey.
