TYLER, Texas -- Some students have been disciplined after a cafeteria fight at an East Texas school left some children slightly hurt in violence captured on video.

KLTV-TV reports two students say they were suspended and face juvenile assault charges after last week’s fight at Robert E. Lee High School in Tyler. Some Tyler Independent School District students posted video online showing several youths slugging each other.

District officials say some students suffered minor injuries in the Oct. 16 fight. Authorities are trying to determine what prompted the argument.

A TISD spokeswoman says teachers stopped the brawl. Dawn Parnell on Monday declined to say how many students were involved. She says appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. Parnell didn’t elaborate.

Tyler police didn’t immediately comment Tuesday.

Names of the juveniles weren’t released.
