Five Elkton High School juniors have been charged in connection to a large fight that broke out at a basketball game last week leaving a student unconscious.

Police were called to Harford Technical High School around 7:30 pm  last Thursday for a fight between the Harford Tech Cobras and the players of Elkton High School.

The fight escalated into the stands and deputies called for assistance from additional agencies to clear the gymnasium.

As a result, five Elkton High School juniors have been charged as juveniles. Four males and one female were each charged with disrupting school operations.

The female was charged with two additional counts of second degree assault for striking a teacher and student. One male was charged with disorderly conduct. The three remaining males were each charged with one count each of second degree assault. One assaulted a teacher and two continued the assault on the student that had already been knocked unconscious.
