ABC 7 (New York), March 26, 2015
Authorities say they’ve charged 19 students, 18 of them girls, in connection with a brawl that broke out at an upstate New York high school.
Local media report that the Chemung County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrests Wednesday, a week after a large fight occurred shortly before noon March 18 in the main lobby area at Elmira High School.
Officials say the fight appears to have been planned. The melee led to the school being placed on lockdown for a short period.
