A new school year that began with enthusiasm and promise was high jacked Tuesday by scenes of police cruisers rushing to Ballou High School in Southeast.
There was a brawl in the school cafeteria. School officials say a fight broke out between a male and a female student believed to be from rival neighborhoods of Parkland and Congress Park.
When the fighting ended five students had been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. School officials say they will be suspended.
