(PHILADELPHIA.CBSLOCAL) — Investigators say 10 students were taken into custody after a massive brawl at Overbrook High School in West Philadelphia.
The brawl, which was captured on cell phone video, allegedly began over a post on social media. The incident was reported at about 10:15 a.m. Monday in a third-floor hallway. As a result of the incident, two students suffered minor injuries. A school administrator also suffered a minor leg injury.
“It’s mayhem. Students are in the halls, they’re smoking in the bathroom; cigarettes, marijuana,” said a worker at the school, who asked not to be identified. “We can’t contain them and it’s really hazardous for us working and these kids are not being educated at all.”
