GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Officials with the Green Bay Police Department say they've referred charges or issued citations to 10 people tied to fights at Preble High School earlier this month.

"We have two individuals that are referred to the district attorney's office as adults for criminal charges including disorderly conduct, trespassing and substantial battery," says Green Bay Police Lt. Chad Ramos. "There were four juveniles referred to juvenile intake with charges including disorderly conduct, trespassing and substantial battery."

Ramos adds that four other juveniles have been issued citations ranging from disorderly conduct, trespassing, and battery.

On Thursday, 17-year-old Davion Austin was formally charged with two felony counts of substantial battery and one count of disorderly conduct.

A criminal complaint reveals that Austin and other teenagers were punching and kicking students after classes let out on February 6. One student got a broken jaw.

A school resource officer at Preble reported there were several fights during the school day, according to the complaint. That officer requested extra cops be present at the end of the school day because he heard a fight would take place.

Authorities confirm that some of the teens involved have gang ties.

Ramos wouldn't elaborate any further, but says the investigation is ongoing.
