Four students were arrested at Centreville High School following a food fight that turned violent Wednesday, WJLA reports.

Three students face assault charges and the fourth is charged with disorderly conduct, according to the station. The victims of the alleged attack were the assistant principal and a school resource officer.

Police were called to the school about 10:20 a.m. after school administrators tried to break up a food fight and punches were thrown, WJLA reports.

A student described the scene to WJLA as a “food fight that turned into a mob fight.”

The arrests come after two other large food fights at area high schools in recent weeks. More than 100 students were involved in a food fight at West Springfield High School that nearly resulted in prom being canceled. Eight students and a parent were arrested at Henry Wise High School after a food fight turned violent there.
