Seven students were arrested after several brawls broke out at suburban New York high school.
Police say they were called to a disturbance at Mount Vernon High School on California Road just before noon Thursday.
When officers arrived, they came upon several fights between students in the cafeteria. Police say onlookers also started throwing bottles, cans and food at the officers.
Police say the officers removed several students involved in the fighting, but a crowd of about 200 students followed them outside where more fights broke out.
Officers from surrounding departments helped quell the melee. No major injuries were reported by any students or officers at the scene.
Police did not say what caused the fights. It wasn't clear what charges the students face.
