APPLE VALLEY, MN (AP) - Police in Apple Valley say they had to subdue a 15-year-old boy with a Taser, as they tried to control a fight involving dozens of people.
 
The incident happened Friday night. Police say they were called to the Hayes Community and Senior Center, which was rented out for a graduation party.
 
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports (http://bit.ly/KofOrE) that police arrived to find anywhere from 50 to 100 people either watching or joining in on a large fight.
 
Authorities used a Taser on a 15-year-old who wouldn't comply with officers' demands. The teen was arrested for disorderly conduct.
 
After the crowd dispersed, fighting continued elsewhere in the neighborhood. A fight also broke out a McDonald's, and police believe it was related.
 
Police don't know what started the fight.
