LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — Ten young women from Massachusetts and New Hampshire have been charged in connection with a brawl at a Dracut park that was recorded and posted on YouTube.
The women between the ages of 17 and 20 are all from Dracut, Mass. and the adjacent town of Pelham, N.H.
The Sun (http://bit.ly/1c8pvaf ) reports that a 19-year-old Dracut woman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to assault and battery and disorderly conduct in connection with the March 13, 2012, fight at Veterans Park. She was released without bail.
The others have received court summonses.
Police say one participant broke her hand and another may have suffered a concussion. The voices of several males can be heard cheering in the background.
The fight was apparently sparked by a dispute between the girls that started online.
