Food fight sparks brawls among students at Detroit school

DETROIT (AP) — Classes at an eastside Detroit high school were dismissed early Tuesday after a food fight sparked other fights involving students.

The food fight started during a lunch period at East English Village Preparatory Academy, the Detroit Public Schools Community District said in a statement.

No serious injuries were reported. Classes were cancelled for the remainder of the day.

“After the school was settled and students returned to their classrooms, a police investigation into the fights determined that it could be gang related and additional fights could occur,” according to the district.

Extra security staff and counselors were to be sent to the school this week.
