Seven teens charged in brawl caught on video

LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

Charges are being filed against seven teenagers involved in a big brawl at George Jenkins High School in Polk County.

They will be charged with affray, which is similar to causing a riot, the Polk Sheriff's Office said.

Video of the melee surfaced online, and the school says it's conducting its own investigation.

It all started with a food fight. A few kids were apparently throwing carrots at each other, and then things got out of hand. At one point, it even appears that a student is picked up in the air and body slammed onto the concrete.

FOX 13's Josh Cascio reported on the video earlier this week. His previous coverage: http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/story/21420068/2013/02/27/high-school-brawl-caught-on-video
