ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Eight students are facing charges after a brawl at Erwin High School in which two teachers were hurt while trying to break up the melee.

The Buncombe County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that 19-year-old Isael Delgado and 18-year-old Dequawn Daniels were charged with disorderly conduct. The fight occurred on Tuesday.
