TURNER — Several students and a former student of Leavitt Area High School were charged last week in connection to an illegal fight club at the school, according to Maine State Police.
A Monday post on the State Police website states that several students were charged with prize fighting through the juvenile court. The exact number of students charged is not specified, and the names of the students, all minors, were not released.
The website also states that one former student, now an 18-year-old adult, was charged with burglary and unlawful fighting.
The arrests came at the end of an investigation by Trooper Michael Chavez that spanned several months, according to the website.
One member of the fight club created a Facebook page related to the group and posted videos of several fights on Youtube, according to the Chavez's report.
