Sylvania Twp. brothers arrested at Southview H.S.

Getting “belligerent” over their little brother’s grades allegedly landed two Sylvania Township men in jail.

On Friday Sylvania police arrested 19-year-old Belal Saadeh and 23-year-old Saaid Saadeh inside Sylvania Southview High School.

According to the Sylvania School District spokesperson, the two suspects are former Sylvania Southview High School students, as well as brothers of a current student.

Sylvania schools spokesperson Nancy Crandell says the two brothers went to the school office on Friday before 1 p.m. to talk to staff about an issue with their brother’s grades and ended up under arrest for violating the Safe Schools Act.

Crandell says the school staff refused to discuss the student’s grades because of a privacy policy: the two men are not the student’s legal guardians.

No weapons were involved and no one was injured, but Crandell says the Saadeh brothers would not listen, would not accept “no” for an answer, and become “rather belligerent” about wanting the information.

When the assistant principal asked the men to leave, police say the two brothers refused to cooperate and ended up in handcuffs.

Sylvania police say this was an isolated incident.  It was not a serious threat to Southview High School security.  However, the Safe Schools Act has been in place since the 90’s and covers everything that disrupts a school environment or makes anyone feel unsafe inside the building. Police say it’s traditionally used for issues between students or between a student and a teacher.

13abc spoke with one of the brothers, Saaid Saadeh, at his house.  He would not comment because he is due in court on Wednesday.

Sylvania police say a Safe Schools violation is a first degree misdemeanor.  If convicted, the penalty is the same as an OVI arrest: up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
