5 people arrested after gang-related fight breaks out at high school football game

At least five people were arrested Friday night after a gang-related fight broke out at a high school football game in Toledo.

Held in the Lucas County jail pending arraignment are Trentant Dotson, 18, of 1328 Brook Park Dr.; Stefon Gibson, 19, of 527 Collins St.; Traquawn Gibson, 18, of 2720 Elm St.; Tyrell Jones, 18, of 738 Woodstock Ave.; and Deandre Smith, 18, of 639 Avondale Ave. All are charged with disrupting a school activity and are to be arraigned Monday morning.

In documents filed at Toledo Municipal Court, the men were at Start High School on Tremainsville Road for the Start-Scott game when gang members from the Manor Boys and the Folk were kicked out of the game for reportedly causing a disturbance. The two groups started to argue outside the stadium and "squared off," claiming to have guns, according to court documents.

It's unclear if any of the accused actually had weapons at the game, though none of the men face weapons charges.

Mr. Smith, Mr. Dotson, and Stefon Gibson reportedly claimed to be members of the Folk. Traquawn Gibson and Mr. Jones reportedly claimed to be Manor Boys.

The Manor Boys claim the Moody Manor, a Kent Street apartment complex in the central city, as their territory. The Folk claim territory in South Toledo.

Start High School won the game, 27-8.
