PORTAGE - Police arrested five students after a food fight during lunchtime at Portage High School.
The teens were led from the school in handcuffs Tuesday after yogurt and taco salad flew across the cafeteria.
The mother of one of the teens, Wendy Mitchell, thinks the school overreacted by calling police. So does Lee Ann Vesley, whose son Ryan Hayes was also involved. Vesley says she's upset they were arrested and now have $172 tickets for disorderly conduct.
Principal Karin Exo says she stands by her decision to call police because the cafeteria was chaotic.
Sophomore Dylan Mitchell says he doesn't have any regrets about the food fight and says it was "kind of" his idea. He says other students even gave them a standing ovation when they walked out of school in handcuffs. Mitchell says that's "pretty sweet."
