Eleven people were charged with misdemeanors Friday night after a fight during the football game between Ball High School and Texas City High School in Galveston.
The fight occurred about 9:30 p.m. outside Kermit Courville Stadium, 1429 27th St. in Galveston, near the end of the football game.
The people arrested were charged with disorderly conduct fighting and interfering or resisting arrest, Galveston Police Department spokesman Sgt. Stacy Papillon said. Nine of the people arrested were juveniles, Papillon said. The names of the two non-juveniles arrested weren’t immediately released.
All of the charged were misdemeanors, Papillon said. There were no reports of major injuries during the incident.
Rumors circulated online that gunshots were fired during the fight. The department, however, received no reports of shots being fired, officials said.
The fight didn’t affect the game going on inside the stadium. Texas City defeated Ball High 33-7.
