ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Multiple students were placed under arrest Wednesday morning after a large fight broke out at TL Hanna High School according to a spokesman for the school district. On Thursday, three of the students appeared in bond court after being charged as adults.

Kyle Newton with Anderson County School District 5 said nine females and two males were taken into custody by Anderson County deputies after the brawl. The fight broke out in the lunch room area of the high school.

Newton said school officials were also reviewing surveillance footage to see if anyone else was involved. At this time, neither the school district nor the sheriff's office will be releasing the footage.

No word yet on what sparked the fight.

Deputies said all 11 students arrested will be charged with disturbing schools. Three of the students will be charged as adults and were booked into the Anderson County Detention Center.

The school day resumed as normal after officials and deputies got the situation under control, Newton said. The school's principal notified parents of the incident via the automated telephone system.

Cortaisha Brown, Kanija Harrison, and Yasmine Springs, all 17, appeared in bond court Thursday morning. They face charges of disturbing school and were charged as adults. The judge informed the teens of their rights and set personal recognizance bonds to allow the teens to get out of jail. The students are due in court for their next hearing on June 16 in Summary Court where they can either plead guilty of request a trial.
