WILTON, Conn. -- While police and school officials from both Wilton and Ridgefield continue to investigate a fight last week between groups of students from each town's high school, officials say they have found no evidence, so far, that either a baseball bat or a golf club were used in the melee, according to The Hour.

A publicized scavenger hunt daring Ridgefield students to urinate on the new football field at Wilton appears to have sparked the brawl on Wednesday , Aug. 31, at Fujitani Field in Wilton. When the 10 students from Ridgefield met about 10 students from Wilton, the groups initially played a game of spikeball together, The Hour reports.

But when a Wilton student may have thought a Ridgefield student might be trying to urinate on the field, the altercation broke out. Another Ridgefield student was injured trying to invervene, The Hour says.

Authorities said both a golf club and baseball bat were present, they found no evidence that either was used, The Hour says. So far, no arrests have been made.

Wilton police are leading the investigation with Ridgefield. Anyone with information about the episode should call Officer Richard Ross at (203)-834-6260, The Hour says.
