TAYLORSVILLE -- A fight broke out between several high school students Tuesday afternoon while they were attending a recruiting event Salt Lake Community College's main campus in Taylorsville.

Students from several high schools in the valley were touring the campus when a few students from different schools exchanged words. Those words were followed by less-than-flattering text messages that called for a fight at the end of the day.

The teens got a few punches in before police, who were already monitoring the situation, called for backup.

"Evidently, it got very chaotic for a minute, between verbally yelling at each other and throwing punches, and that is why we made a call to the different agencies. We had them respond fairly quickly, and as soon as we got more help, it started to disband a little bit more once they saw more of a police presence here," said Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Cameron Roden.

Four students were cited for disorderly conduct and released to their parents. No one was seriously hurt.
