Albany girl arrested in teenager's street brawl


A social media argument leads to a brawl involving as many as 40 girls and boys in a south Albany street.

Police were called to the intersection of West Lincoln Avenue and South Van Buren Street about 7:15 Sunday night.

Witnesses told officers a group of juveniles started a fight with a 16-year old girl.

Neighbors say it quickly escalated. Lorenzo Wimbus said "Those people not from this community. It come from a facebook thing. The young people from the high school, they getting into it. It's a group of girls here and there."

One 15-year old girl was arrested and taken to the Regional Youth Detention Center.

No injuries were reported.
