An 18-year-old student at Westlake High School has been charged with a felony following a school fight.

The fight broke out in the boys restroom Tuesday between a 17-year-old junior and an 18-year-old sophomore, according to police. The 17-year-old student is in the hospital with very serious head injuries.

He was found by school staff and appeared lethargic. He was seen by a school nurse who recommended the student undergo a medical evaluation.

A family member picked up the student and transported him to Fairview Hospital. He was later airlifted to MetroHealth Medical Center, said police.

The suspect Deandrew Smith of Westlake turned himself in Wednesday. He was charged with felonious assault. His bond was set at $5,000 and a no-contact order was issued. He posted bond and was released.

His next hearing is Tuesday, April 19 in the Rocky River Municipal Court.

The case will be submitted to the grand jury for review.
