FYN has learned that a Pickens County student has a court appearance scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at the Fannin County Courthouse after a fight during a basketball game in Fannin County over the weekend. Facebook posts indicate this occurred during a middle school game in which another student was assaulted and was taken to the hospital as a result. FYN will update the story as more information becomes available
No, Frank. Facebook is just a good indicator that there might be news and a good resource for leads to further investigate. However, I'm sure if you called the Blue Ridge City Police, they could confirm the facts of this story =).
