A fight between two high school students erupted into a riot of 500 people, prompting officers to fire bean bags and rubber pellets to scatter the crowd, police said. No major injuries were reported.
About 100 officers rushed to Fontana High School after students threw rocks and bottles at other officers and one another, according to Fontana police Sgt. Doug Wagner.
Police were investigating the cause of the fight.

I don't suppose you know any details about the incident in that video, do you?
I noticed they were using fireworks...
Innovative, to say the least.
Also, any idea if that's recent? The style of dress would suggest it's recent, but I don't know...
Fontana High School students clash with police

Medical personnel roll an unidentified male student to an awaiting ambulance after a disturbance Friday at Pacific High School in San Bernardino.
Confrontations between black and Hispanic students on two high school campuses today triggered a riot by about 500 teens in Fontana and a smaller disturbance in San Bernardino that led to the suspension of about 60 students, officials say.
Rocks and bottles were thrown at police and sheriff's deputies during the lunch hour riot at Fontana High School before the students dispersed about 1 p.m. A fight between two girls apparently triggered the melee, but there were no reports of significant injuries.
At Pacific High School in San Bernardino, as many as 100 students refused to return to class after lunch, leading to a showdown between about 75 Hispanic and 25 African-American students, said Linda Hill, spokeswoman for the San Bernardino Unified School District.
"This Hispanic group charged the smaller group of students, and school police released pellets of pepper spray," Hill said.
One student ducked, she said, and was hit the face by a pepper-spray projectile. He was taken away on a stretcher and was arrested for disturbing the peace, Hill said.
Although some students scattered and returned to class after the pepper spray was released, about 60 remained and are being suspended from school, Hill said.
