Two Hilton Head Middle School students got into a fight in the courtyard Tuesday that led to one chasing the other with a trowel, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.
The students were shoving each other when one grabbed a trowel that was lying on the ground in front of a tool shed and chased the other, according to the report. The student being chased kicked the tool out of the boy's hand and assaulted him, the report said.
Both students were seen by a school nurse and had no physical injuries. Both were charged with assault and battery in the third degree.
As a result of the incident, there is now a lock on the shed door, the report said.
