CHICAGO (AP) - Nearly 30 teenagers were arrested at a Chicago high school and are facing mob action charges after a school day brawl.

The 29 students were arrested Tuesday at Percy L. Julian High School on the city's far Side South.

Police say each student is charged as a juvenile and is facing a single count of mob action. Police arrested 26 boys and 3 girls.

In a statement, Chicago Public Schools officials say normal class activity resumed after the fight, which they say as "quickly resolved."

Extra security is being added to the school.

Julian has about 1,000 students.
