WESTON (CBS4) – A food fight at Cypress Bay High School lead to the arrest of a student Friday afternoon.

Cell phone video captured hundreds of students quickly crowding into the school’s courtyard during the lunch period, around 12:15 p.m.

“I can’t really say it was a riot, it was more of people getting together and acting silly,” said 12th Grader Juan Jose Rada.

Rada and his friend Danny Torres took pictures and video of the commotion they says started as a food fight.

“One person threw something and it just got crazy and people started running around and pushing each other,” said Torres.

Both students say things intensified once BSO deputies arrived and arrested one student while the crowd chanted for them to let him go.

Parents said the incident was concerning.

“I always tell my daughter the school is way too big with not enough resources,” said Tom Aguayo.

As far as what caused the food fight, some students think it may have started as a senior prank, but couldn’t say for sure.

No one was seriously injured.  According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, the student arrested has been charged with resisting arrest without violence.
