Peekskill school officials concerned over escalating violence

Peekskill High School officials are fed up with the recent brawls at the school and have warned students that they will be arrested if they start a fight.

There were two unrelated fights at the school in as many days. On Monday, there was a brawl at a basketball game and another battle erupted after school on Tuesday. No weapons were used in either fight, however, police were called in both times.

The Peekskill police chief and school officials are concerned the violence is escalating, so they are sending a message to students that fighting will not be tolerated.
