Deputies arrested a local juvenile for challenging an adult to a fight Monday afternoon after officers broke up a large group of high school students in front of the Silverado Apartments, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Word spread around Ramona High School Monday that there would be a fight in the general area of the apartments (511 14th St.), and the school informed the Sheriff's Department, said Sgt. John Boyce.
He said deputies broke up a large group of 50-100 high school students after school Monday, but no actual fight occurred.
Residents from the complex saw the large group and attempted to break it up before the fight could start. Boyce said one of the youths challenged an adult resident to a fight, deputies intervened and the juvenile was arrested.
No injuries were reported.
Boyce said that deputies are patrolling the area Tuesday afternoon in case of a repeat of the incident.
