Bloody brawl at graduation event

- A graduation event at a Long Island high school descended into an ugly brawl.

It broke out Sunday at the William Floyd High School in Mastic Beach.

Video of the incident was posted to Facebook.  It showed two women grappling on the ground.

Several people tried to separate them but a woman ran up and started kicking one of the brawlers.  The two were finally pried apart but not before one of the women had blood pouring down the side of her face.

Suffolk County Police were called and when they arrived the crowd dispersed.  No arrests were made.

There was no word on what started the altercation.

The school district released a statement to Fox 5 News stating:  "We are disappointed by the actions of those who instigated the incident on what was a joyous occasion for our students and their families. As a school and community, we won't let the small number of spectators involved in inappropriate behavior overshadow the accomplishments of so many wonderful students and their families celebrating graduation day. Many of our students are headed to the finest colleges and universities in the world, will serve honorably in the armed forces or begin the initial steps of their careers after learning valuable skills in one of our career and technical education academies. Graduation day is about them."
