BOYNTON BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A brawl, outside a youth football game, ends with eight children arrested. One girl arrested is accused of hitting a police officer.

It all went down during a Police Athletic League football game at the Bill Tome Sports Complex in Boynton Beach. We're told it happened at half time, out front, and not on the field.

One girl is accused of battery on an officer. She was taken to the juvenile assessment center. The other seven children were released to their parents. They were charged with obstruction.

We don't know yet what started the fight.
