Caught on camera: Students, police clash at Middletown HS basketball game

Posted: Updated:

A video posted on Facebook shows police escorting people out of Middletown High School's varsity basketball game.

The woman who posted the video says security told students from Newburgh that the Middletown gym was full to capacity and to wait outside in the cold.

Middletown police responded on Facebook, calling the video just a small part of what was a more than two-hour incident. The post also said the department is reviewing what happened.

Newburgh's mayor also responded on Facebook saying this is one of two incidents that happened Friday night. He said that after the game, things got very physical and people were hurt.

"I am also coordinating a meeting for next week to review all video footage and discuss how these violent exchanges can be avoided and handled differently moving forward," said Mayor Torrance Harvey on Facebook.
