RONKONKOMA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Nine high school students from Connetquot High School on Long Island have been arrested, after a fight that left a 15-year-old boy’s jaw broken.

Around 3 p.m. Sunday, March 7, a group of Connetquot High students got into a fight on Remington Avenue in Ronkonkoma, Suffolk County police said.

A 15-year-old boy suffered a broken jaw during the fight, which was videotaped by a bystander, police said.

“The initial incident started over name calling and it escalated over a month-long period to a point where individuals agreed to participate in a fight,” Lt. John O’Brien told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall.

Four students were charged as juveniles and were to appear in First District Court in Central Islip at a later date, police said.

Five more have been charged with adults and have been arraigned. They are:

• Carl Knight, 17, of Ronkonkoma, who is charged with criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, unlawful assembly, disorderly conduct, and harassment;
