VALPARAISO, IN (AP) - Authorities say four middle school
students in Valparaiso were arrested on battery and disorderly
conduct charges after they were accused of starting a food fight on
the last day of school.
The food fight happened Wednesday at Thomas Jefferson Middle
School. The 14-year-old boys were released to their parents.
Police Sgt. Steve Jackson says he was asked by an assistant
principal to be in the cafeteria during lunch because of reports a
food fight might occur. Jackson said the food fight created a panic
in the cafeteria.
