Yukon Police officers arrested two “unauthorized students” during a protest Thursday at Yukon High School, said Maj. Matt Fairchild.

Police were called to respond to the high school in reference to a protest taking place on the campus.

Students across the Oklahoma City area protested the possibility of execution of Julius Jones Thursday before Gov. Stitt commuted his sentence to life without parole.

“We were advised there were two unauthorized students on campus, who were refusing to leave. Yukon High School requested Yukon police officers to tell them to leave,” Fairchild reported. “Yukon police officers made contact with the two juveniles, and they were told they could not be on the property and needed to leave.”

One juvenile was arrested on a complaint of trespassing, and the other one was arrested on a complaint of trespassing, resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer. The arrests were about 12:40 p.m., Fairchild said.
