Long Island Students Brawl Viciously Outside School (VIDEO)

Video of two Long Island students punching each other in the face was captured and posted on Youtube, and from there, it went viral at their school, Half Hollow Hills East.

In the video, two students brawl viciously behind school grounds while others watch, and even excitedly cheer them on. "Hit him in the face!" one could be heard shouting.

Once the two saw a school staff member, they stopped fighting and said nothing was wrong.

But then school officials saw the fight on Youtube, reports Fox NY. Once they saw the footage they penalized the two fighters in the video, as well as the two who captured and posted it online.
