MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A water balloon fight has landed three Minot high school students in hot water.

The Minot Daily News reports (asterisk)https://bit.ly/2q8R5OB ) that an 18-year-old boy and two 17-year-old boys were charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after the water balloon fight last week in the lunch room at Magic City Campus.

Police say the teens “caused disruption in the school environment” because of the “yelling and screaming connected to the water balloons being thrown.”

Assistant Superintendent Kim Slotsve says the water on the floor also caused a hazard.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 days in jail.

Supporters of the boys have set up an online petition asking for the charges to be dropped.
