Four of the arrested juveniles have been charged with misdemeanor battery and fighting in public. The fifth, a teen girl, faces a charge of felony assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly hitting another girl in the face with a full beer can. The victim needed stitches. The altercation between the girls happened while they were waiting for an organized fight to begin, Nyunt said.
Another recent fight, which was not one of the organized skirmishes, left one of the combatants with a cracked spine, which was nonparalyzing, and a broken hand, police said.
The investigated fights, including one that was video-recorded and put on YouTube, have taken place at Arnett Park, George Washington Park and Pacific Grove High’s parking lot.
