ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Rochester say hundreds of people were involved in a series of fights that erupted after a high school football game.
The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that it took police more than an hour to disperse the fights that followed Friday’s game between East High School and Irondequoit High School.
Police say officers were pelted with rocks and bottles when they tried to stop the fights. The officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.
Rochester Police Capt. Naser Zenelovic says one officer suffered minor injuries and a 16-year-old’s nose was broken. Four adults and four juveniles were arrested.
East High School Superintendent Shaun Nelms says the brawls started outside the stadium. He says “a community issue” is to blame for the violence.
