A Connecticut school board meeting turned violent on Tuesday when punches were thrown after a debate over a high school's mascot.
The incident at Glastonbury High School took place during a break in the school board's "special meeting" to decide on the fate of the school's mascot, according to footage of the melee captured on video.
A decision had to be made whether to drop the new name "Guardians" and bring back the name "Tomahawks," according to a report.

The latter had been retired following concerns over racial insensitivity, and Tuesday's discussion produced a fiery debate.
During the break, an adult in the audience verbally attacked school board member Ray McFall and punched him in the face, according to footage.
The fight began as a verbal altercation between two men, according to a report.
They stood face to face with each other, and the board member pushed the man before receiving a right hand to the jaw.
McFall can be seen falling to the floor and getting up as the crowd steps in to break up the men.
The meeting was abruptly ended following the fight.
