OSG High: Ohio HS FB Game Called Because Of Fight

((HT: Fox 8/WEWS-TV))

A high school football game between Garfield Heights and Collinwood (OH) was called because of a fight that started either in one of two places: after a cheap shot on the field and escalated on the field, or something that started in the stands and ended on the field with that outburst...

Newsnet5 in Cleveland found this video

Initially, five people were arrested but two were released after the first hours in the investigation.

Here's (believe it or not) chopper video of the moment the fight happened...

And the update

Garfield Heights (OH) City Schools released this statement: “Because the safety and security of every person who attends co-curricular activities at the Garfield Heights City Schools is of the utmost importance, district officials, game officials and security personnel made the decision to cancel the game instantaneously. Local officials took appropriate action, and the community can rest assured knowing that those students of the Garfield Heights City Schools who were involved will be swiftly and appropriately dealt with by the district.”
