Dixie Hollins High School student charged with assaulting school employee

KENNETH CITY — A Dixie Hollins High School student was arrested Monday morning after deputies said she assaulted a school employee.

Erin Wiley was charged with felony battery on a school district employee and misdemeanor disruption of a school function.

According to a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office report, Wiley was involved in an argument with another student at about 7:40 a.m. at Dixie Hollins High, 4940 62nd St. N. The altercation turned physical, according to deputies, and Wiley started chasing the other student and attempting to fight them.

A school staffer intervened. The staffer tried to stand between the two students, the report said, but Wiley wouldn't back down. Wiley tried to go around the staffer, who then grabbed the student's arm. That's when Wiley went after the staffer, deputies said.

"When a school official tried to intervene, she began to kick and punch the school employee," said sheriff's spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda.

Because Wiley is 18, she was booked as an adult into the Pinellas County Jail. She was being held there Monday afternoon in lieu of $5,250 bail.
