SOUTH HOLLAND - Students were quiet for a second day Thursday, and police

said they expect no more arrests after a pair of fights at Thornwood High

School after school on Tuesday.

Police arrested four male teens Tuesday afternoon after they got into fights

stemming from an off-campus disagreement more than a week ago, sources said.

Principal Gregory Fantozzi and a South Holland police officer assigned to the

school broke up the fights.

The officer suffered a chipped bone in his arm after he tripped and fell

while chasing one of the suspects, Fantozzi said.

Phillip Lillard, 17, of South Holland; Kamali Trammell, 17, of Calumet City;

and an unidentified 16-year-old - all upperclassmen at the high school - were

charged with mob action and disorderly conduct following Tuesday's incident.

Police and school sources said they are also serving 10-day suspensions from

school and may face additional punishments after an administrative review.

A fourth teen, 19-year-old Tamerias Hinton of Harvey, was also charged.

Hinton is not a student at Thornwood, police said.

Police Chief Dan Zajeski said that police have received the names of some

other individuals who may have been involved in the fight, but police do not

have enough evidence to charge them in connection with the incident.

Extra officers were assigned to the campus Thursday afternoon as students

left school for their spring vacation, which runs through April 7.
