Police records say the two teachers got into a dispute last Tuesday after Hill walked through the middle of a JROTC formation at the school.

After the scuffle, neither teacher wanted to pursue charges, according to the police report.

Last week, the school system said it was aware of the incident and was conducting an internal investigation.
