Life in "Progress" City - Covington KY edition

From the area Obama carried 79%-20% in the last election.........

About 15 police officers responded to a large fight in the City Heights housing complex Tuesday morning.

At about 10 a.m. officers were called to the 2600 block of Todd Court because several people were reportedly armed with stun guns and bats.

'It started as a juvenile altercation and progressed to a melee of sorts," said Covington Police spokesman Spike Jones.

Five people were fighting armed with a hammer, a stun gun and a knife, Jones said.

One woman reported that she had been hit with a stun gun. At least one juvenile was transported to St. Elizabeth Covington.

There were no other injuries, Jones said.

Several people were taken into custody, he said. Police were still sorting out how many people would be arrested and what charges they would face.

You know why we don't have these "melees" in Redville? Because we're all at work.
