When two female Greenwood High School students decided to take their war of words to the next level and throw punches, the fight landed a Bowling Green woman in jail and the two girls in juvenile court.

On Sunday, Warren County sheriff’s deputies charged Shannon Megan Omeallie, 52, 581 Shaker Mill Road, Bowling Green, with two counts of third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor. Omeallie was booked into the Warren County Regional Jail, where she posted a $2,000 cash bond, according to court records. She is scheduled to appear in court at 8 a.m. Friday.

    The post just takes some time to be viewed and approved. I think it took mine 12 hours.

    Gee, I made a post and it hasn't been posted. I didn't think I said anything wrong except to sugggest that we not name-call, but act like adults. I believe I also said that I presumed the writer of the article to have gotten her information from a police report--none of which I have ever seen them report correctly. So, am trying again....

    Since someone has commented that the incident didn't happen as it was reported in the article, it seems to me that the reporter probably just copied the information from the 'Police Blotter', and I've NEVER seen a correct police report. Instead of name-calling (was that what caused the fight between the two students?), perhaps we can all act like adults. Remember, in the United States, one is presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty ~

    I think this incident has been blown way out of proportion. And the fact that something like this was put on the front page, above the fold, is irresponsible in my opinion. There are so many more newsworthy topics. The Daily News has turned into a tabloid.

    I am actually glad to hear that a concerned mother stayed on the premises to oversee the behavior of these wayward children. Things may have gotten out of hand if such a fight were to happen in a remote area where NOBODY could have or would have intervened. More parents should know where their children are and what they're doing...If you're responding negatively to this issue, you may be one of the ones who doesn't really know your child.

    And precisely how do you know that the facts of this story were incorrect? You'd have to been a participant, on the sidelines watching, Omealli herself OR received your information from someone who was on-scene while you were not. My guess is the latter. Who else would be that concerned that her name be correctly without providing the correct spelling.

    @ liarliar-well a jury of her peers will decide the outcome of this,not us. if you have pertinent info about the case, and are a credible witness, then maybe you should come forward. oh btw, a responsible adult would have broken it up IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!

    In other words, you were one of the sixteen student bystanders who was probably friends with one of the girls. Watching the fight encouraged the girls' actions. Had the girls maturely dealt with their issues, this article would not have been in the newspaper, and you would not have been "fired-up" to write a response. The newspaper was simply exercising their first amendment (freedom of speech and press). Also remember, reporters write what they see and HEAR from witnesses. Regardless if the newspaper reported the event "correctly," the girls should not have been fighting with such immaturity, and the student bystanders (who appear to have known of the fight prior to the event) should have told an adult before the fight occurred.

    I would like to point out that almost all the "facts" stated in this article are not the truth and whoever wrote this didn't know what really happened. Mrs."Omeallie" (spelled wrong) did in fact break up the fight and made everyone leave. There was not blood running from the mouths of the fighters. One of the girl's nose's started to bleed, and she wasn't hurt other than that. I myself talked to both of them before they were MADE to leave and they both said that they were not hurt. I would suggest getting stories straight, and to not make up parts of the stories as you please to let the whole world see and read. Thank you.
