Teenage Twitter Fight Leads to Broken Jaw in Alamo

A Twitter squabble over someone's girlfriend led to about half dozen teenagers fighting in the streets of Alamo Saturday night, according to police.

An 18-year-old man was hospitalized after he had his jaw broken by a two-by-four in a fight involving about a half dozen teenagers outside an Alamo party on Saturday night, Contra Costa Sheriff's Department spokesman Jimmy Lee said.

The street fight occurred on the 200 block of Viking Place at about 6 p.m. Lee said there was a graduation party and someone not at the party said something about someone's girlfriend on Twitter.

This led to teenagers, affiliated with a different high school — who were not invited to the party — to show up and a fight broke out.

When officers arrived the fight had already been broken up and the suspects had fled. The man who had his jaw broken was invited to the party, Lee said.

No one has been arrested in connection to the fight and the case is still under investigation.

Multiple posts on Twitter indicated the fight was between teenagers affiliated with and  high school's.

A tweet Saturday night from someone connected to De La Salle, said, "Jaws broken in two places. Going in for surgery. Thank you so much for the support. Love you all."

I emailed the CC Sheriff. Here is his reply: "The case has been filed with the DA's Office for review. We are waiting to hear from them on the next step."

Arrested!? Are you serious?! SAYS WHO?! Where is your proof? He is completely fine, with no charges pressed against him, enjoying college. I am a good friend of his and can guarantee you he has not been detained. But how do you know that, where's my proof? I can't prove that, no one can prove anything on here and no one has factual evidence of what's happened, so give it up. You're all just stirring rumors, attempting to prove your school is better and more innocent than big bad Monte Vista. I'm surprised your comment didn't tell everyone here that he's now on death row!! Because that would mean the Spartans have one right? And you guys can't lose!! NEVER! You have to win, have to be right, and have to be above everyone else! Give it up, and keep your adult gossiping and rumors to yourselves.

Sprtndad, You are a complete moron. No one has been arrested. You continue to come on here to try to stir up crap. Get a life. A high school fistfight. It happens all the time.It is only because it was a DLS kid getting the crap kicked out of himself that this has lingered as long as it has. And you keep perpetuating false rumors about 20 or 25 against 2 or 3. Again a flat out lie. of the approximately 20 boys at the site the overwhelming majority were SRV boys just watching a 1 on 1 fight become a 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 MV vs DLS only because a DLS kid jumped one of the original participants from behind. That is all in the report if you care to read it and move on with your pitiful life.
