Horrifying footage captures moment 30 kids brawl with a dad

At least two people have been arrested in connection with a huge brawl that happened at a high school – which a student’s dad is alleged to have started.

The fight took place at Tucson High School in Arizona on Wednesday, prompting the campus to be put into a temporary lockdown.

In a clip, taken at the scene, students can be seen piled on top of one another as they fight.

Dozens of people can be seen on the floor, throwing punches, and watching the drama unfold. Security officers appear to try and separate one group, while other students film the chaos.

According to CBS affiliate KOLD News 13 court documents obtained on Wednesday revealed a man and his two sons were advised before the disturbance to use an exit that would help them avoid a confrontation.

Officers were called to Tucson High by the Tucson Unified School District, the Tucson Police Department said.

According to the TPD, there were no reported injuries and no weapons involved.

However, the police department said a 40-year-old Willie Smith has been arrested on a felony charge of disrupting an educational institute while a 15-year-old boy is facing a charge of disorderly conduct-fighting.

According to an interim complaint, Smith was summoned to the school to pick up his two sons, who were being sent home after a disturbance with another group of students on Monday.

Smith was advised by school staff and safety officers that he and his sons should leave through a back exit, rather than the actual campus, the document said.

But Smith was alleged to have refused and to have taken his sons through the courtyard during lunch.

Smith was alleged to have told staff this was an ongoing issue.

If not addressed, there would be a problem, he said.

According to the document, Smith said: “If it’s going down, it’s going down here,” according to the document.

Officers said Smith was referring to his sons protecting themselves if provoked.

There was an exchange between a group of students and one of Smith’s sons when the three walked through the courtyard, and a fight broke out.

When both of Smith’s sons allegedly got into an altercation, he reportedly followed them into the area and got into “mutual combat” with a student.

Both parties were throwing punches at each other before Smith allegedly pinned the student to the ground by his neck.

The dad has since admitted to fighting with the student and claimed the student was assaulting his son, the complaint said.

It had not been confirmed who had thrown the first punch.

According to the complaint, Smith said he and his sons didn’t feel they needed to leave through the back gate since he was not told by school staff that his sons had done anything wrong to be sent home.

The district said all students and staff were safe and the campus returned to normal operations a few hours after the incident.

The clip of the incident has been shared on Twitter, where it was viewed more than 16,000 times and garnered hundreds of comments.

One Twitter user alleged: “A dad started this whole altercation.”

Other viewers were shocked by the clip, calling it “so sad” and “disgusting”.

“Wow! What’s happened to our high schools?” one person commented.

Another user said: “This is extremely sad. It’s a complete riot in there. Hope everyone is safe now.”
