Authorities Say Brawl in Stanton County was Over Social Media Post

STANTON, NE — Authorities say what began as a social media post escalated into a fight that hospitalized a teen with serious injuries.

Last week the Stanton County Sheriff’s Office says they began to investigate an incident at the West City Park that resulted in a teen being hospitalized and requiring facial surgery from injuries received during a series of fights. Authorities say the fight was between youth from Stanton and several area towns.

Authorities say that several arrests have been made with more to come.

Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger says much of the fight was captured on cell phone video and posted to social media.
