NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a thrown water balloon started a fight during lunch that sent one student to a hospital.
Five other students were arrested after the melee at Hunters Lane High School on Friday.
WSMV-TV reported seven or eight people went after the student who threw the balloon, kicking and beating him.
A school resource officer used pepper spray as he intervened, and more than a dozen officers were sent to the school to restore order.
