    [​IMG]The
    fight occurred at Harton Primary School, as one man bit another’s
    finger off and “spat it out like an animal”- according to a witness.
    The brawl began in a room prior to the nativity starting with shocked
    parents looking on.

    The 32-year-old victim has been discharged
    from hospital after being treated for his injury while a 39-year-old
    man was arrested on suspicion of assault and later bailed by police.

    “Two
    men started to fight in front of all the mums and dads,” a parent told
    ‘South Shields Gazette’. “One bit the finger off the other and spat the
    blood out like an animal.”

    “I heard a bit of commotion from the
    back of the room and looked around to see what was going on,” another
    said. “A man in a white hat stormed in and went for another dad. They
    were fighting and blood was flying. It was broken up by teachers quite
    quickly and the man in the hat disappeared.”

    It is thought that
    no children witnessed the incident as they were preparing for the
    nativity. A spokesman for the school said the children were not “at
    risk at any time” and they are assisting police with inquiries into the
    attack.

    “On Tuesday at about 1.50pm an incident occurred at
    Harton Primary School,” a police spokesman said. “There was a
    disturbance between two male parents, and one sustained an injury to
    his hand which required medical treatment. The other man was arrested
    by police for assault and released on bail.”

    To my surprise, I wasn't surprised.
     
  8. I wasnt surprised either.
    Part of my day today was spent organising a few parents attendance at our nativity(s) to avoid conflict that we know would happen!

    Dreadful. There are no boundaries or limits for some people. A full on fist fight broke out between two mothers in the playground of a school I was working in a couple of years ago. The main protagonist was a Governor. Made the local paper. She was beligerent about it and saw no reason to step down.

    Sad now, but many schools have to organise parents evenings and concerts etc to ensure that parents in conflict do not attend at the same time. I wondered why the school had not anticipated this as there was a history of previous conflict apparently.
