Maine students warned after brawl at cemetery

April 3, 2013

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — Police have issued warnings to about a dozen high schools students from Waterville and Fairfield who were involved in a brawl at a Waterville cemetery that was recorded and posted online.

Deputy Chief Charles Rumsey says the fight occurred Friday afternoon or evening at St. Francis Cemetery and involved students ages 15 to 17 from Waterville Senior and Lawrence high schools.

Rumsey tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/10v2Wn0 ) the fight was prompted by a dispute between students on a social media website. The students were warned for disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.

Video of the pre-arranged brawl was posted on YouTube but has since been removed.

Officials at both schools are investigating.

It does not appear as if any gravestones were damaged and there were no reports of serious injuries.
