There are new developments in the investigation of a student fight club at Swain County High School.
Nine students have been suspended instead of eight originally reported by school leaders. More suspensions are possible. News 13 was the first to break this story on Friday.
The investigation was launched after this cell phone video of the ninth graders fighting went viral. In a statement, the school says the investigation is ongoing and involves both students and now school personnel.
One student told News 13 a teacher knew about the fights, but didn't do anything. The school is not saying if any teachers have been reprimanded.
