"Girls are catty, very very catty."
The cattiness displayed on Myspace has trickled into the hallways of North Boone High School. It's gotten so bad, a Boone County Sheriff's Deputy is now there for security.
"We're doing that as a result of some students and teachers expressing they didn't feel as comfortable there was a fight and several teachers had to break it up," says North Boone Superintendent Rita Brodnax.
Principal Christine Troller says it was a girl fight that started with a rumor circulating on Myspace.
"I got rid of mine cause of all the drama I used to have one for a year or so," says North Boone junior Roxy Geiger.
Myspace also lead to the suspension of a male student who threatened to harm fellow classmates online. Only those who are members of Myspace and are registered friends could see someone else's profile.
"I have a lot of friend requests but I deny them and I only accept people I know and won't cause drama on my Myspace," says North Boone sophomore Cristina Martinez.
The North Boone School District will pay a Sheriff's Deputy between $34,000 and $38,000 a year to patrol the school. Because too often these viscous confrontations are seeping out of cyberland and making their way into the classroom.
The Deputy will be at school for the remainder of the semester. And then at the next board meeting, members will discuss hiring an officer for all of next year.
