15 Lee County Students Charged After Fights Posted On YouTube

Fifteen Lee County High School students were arrested today after video showing students fighting in a boys' bathroom was posted on YouTube-dot-com.

The students, who were between the ages of 14 and 17, were charged with disorderly conduct on a school campus. Officials said many of the fights were staged and video typically showed two students fighting while others cheered.

In one clip, a participant trips and hits his face on a wall-mounted hand dryer while his opponent continues to punch him from behind. In another video, the same student spits blood in a sink.

No one was seriously hurt but some students received minor injuries.

School administrators are trying to remove the videos from the online video Web site.
