CAMDEN, N.Y. -- A Camden High School teen has been arrested after a fight with another student. 

On Monday at 11:30 p.m., Oneida County Sheriff's deputies responded after they say a 16-year-old student told the school;s special patrol officer that she was involved in a physical fight during lunch with a 17-year-old girl. 

Officials say their investigation showed that the students were off school grounds at the McDonald's on Oswego Street during lunch, when the 17-year-old girl choked the other teen. 

No other students were involved in the fight, but deputies say the 17-year-old was the agressor. 

Security video was reviewed and is consistent with their investigation, they say. 

The 17-year-old student was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, criminal obstruction of breathing, and harassment.

Authorities believe the fight stemmed from accusations from someone both students are familiar. 

The Camden Central School District is also conducting an administrative investigation of the incident.
