WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah – Two juveniles were arrested after multiple agencies responded to a fight that broke out after a basketball game at Granger High School Friday.

Granite School District Spokesperson Ben Horsley said two female juveniles were fighting, but the fight was shortly broken up by a Granite School District police officer.

After the fight ended two male juveniles allegedly started harassing the officer, Horsley said.

No actual fight broke out between the officer and the two male juveniles, according to Horsley, but assistance was later called due to threats being made by the individuals.

Both the Unified Police Department and West Jordan Police Department responded to the incident as a backup, Horsley stated.

According to Horsley, the two male juveniles were taken into custody for failure to obey an officer’s commands.

Nobody was hurt and none of the students involved attend Granger High School, Horsley stated.

Granite District Police is conducting further investigation into the incident.
