Police arrest 21 during melee; gunfire heard in crowd at High School Game in NYC - Police arrest 21 during melee; gunfire heard in crowdAssociated Press

NEW YORK -- Teenagers brawled in the stands at a high school basketball game at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night before police cracked down on the melee, which spilled into the streets.

Gunfire was heard as the crowd went from the arena to Times Square, police said. No injuries were reported. Twenty-one people, mostly teenagers, were arrested, police said. Some were charged with disorderly conduct or resisting arrest and one was arrested on a riot charge.

There is a scene in the movie, "Pride" where there is a fight.

Furthermore, I've been shouting that we should keep the Civic Arena for activities, such as scholatic sporting events. Perhaps the comment should be twisted to mean that that the high schoolers should play in a venue where there are less fears of messing up the leather seats of the new Pens arena.

Interesting comments in the thread on the site at ESPN too.
