Berkeley police arrested five Berkeley High School students last Friday after a fight between two youths escalated into a large scale fracas. 

“A large number of officers responded to the school” after the first call came in at 3:24 p.m., said Berkeley police spokesperson Officer Joe Okies. 

The suspects were charged with a variety of offenses including fighting on school property, assault on school property, battery on a police officer, assault on a school employee, and trespassing on school property with intent to disturb the peace.
