High school food fight leads to arrests

Three high school students were detained after a food fight by 200 students left a police officer with a broken foot.

West Aurora High School students threw french fries, milk, sandwiches and pizza slices at each other Thursday during what administrators called a senior prank that went wild.

"It was just insane," said senior Zach Little. "Things like milk cartons, full pop bottles and blue slushies were flying around. Kids literally bought the food to throw it and, to me, that's a little expensive."

The food fight's alleged 18-year-old instigator faces a felony charge for resisting arrest, after authorities said he ran from a police officer. The officer tripped over another student who had fallen, breaking his foot. A school official also suffered minor injuries.

"A prank is something that's funny and doesn't harm anything or anyone, but a food fight is entirely different - a bad choice, bad judgment," said Principal John Glimco.

Two juveniles also face misdemeanor charges, including a 15-year-old charged with mob action and disorderly conduct and a 14-year-old charged with assault.

The lunch area will remain closed on Monday, the last day of classes.
