SOUTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - A fight at Cypress Lake High School this morning resulted in the arrest of seven male students.

The Lee County School District did not have any other details about the brawl.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office is investigating the matter.

The school has had a rough year in regards to violence.  Recently a 16-year-old member of the Cypress Lake girl's basketball team was arrested for hitting an older man in a prank to duplicate the "knock out game."

Also this fall the school's football team was slapped with sanctions when officials stopped a game when Cypress Lake players became enraged.  The incident led to the firing in the head coach.

In the spring of 2013 another Cypress Lake student was charged with bringing a gun onto a school bus and threatening a classmate.
