2008_05_newarkpo.JPGWe heard there was a huge fight in Newark, with hundreds of teens involved and then a stolen police car that hit two people in the crowd. It now turns out that the situation was less crowded but still with a stolen police car.

According to the Star-Ledger, about 100 high school students had gathered to watch a fight at Park Avenue and North 5th Street. While it's unclear why the fight started, witness said "responding officers took two students into custody, but one managed to break away. Meanwhile, the other student got a hold of the keys to a marked police car, which he drove for about a half-block before ramming into two cars parked on the south side of the street." So the fight ended there.

The car hit two students, both of whom are being treated at the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
