Sumter, SC (WLTX) - Eight students have been suspended from a Sumter County middle school in the wake of a fight that was videotaped.

District officials confirmed the suspensions Tuesday afternoon.

Sumter County deputies say last Thursday, two boys got into a fight in a bathroom Hillcrest Middle School. PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Student Fight at Middle School Caught on Video

At least two people recorded the incident with a mobile device, and a shortened clip from one of those recordings was posted to YouTube last weekend.

Deputies, however, examined a second, longer recording, which they said did not show a criminal act. In the video, it appears as if the boys shake hands before the fight.
