Five people arrested following midnight fight on State Street, Batavia
It took nearly an hour for Batavia PD to bring order back to State Street last night after a fight was reported at 11:55 p.m. involving 20 to 30 people near Lewis Place.
Five people were taken into custody.

Officers responding from Batavia PD were Lt. Greg Steele, Sgt. Dan Coffey and officers Frank Klimjack and Eric Bolles. Deputies and troopers assisted at the scene.
Latoya D. Jackson
Wow, what a surprise there....d'oh!
"Six people arrested following midnight fight on State Street"
"Five people were taken into custody"
What happened to the 6th?
No surprise that Latoya Jackson was involved:
Should read five people arrested.
An hour for the police to bring it under control? This seems very long to me perhaps the police can call for a little more back up I think this city has become out of control at dinner time forward as far as go for a walk. I have encountered out of control fights everywhere. Something is going to happen to innocent people and it always does before something is done.
News flash city manager ---maybe you want to get together with your new chief and do a little control the out of control mess the city has in Austin park is now out in the neighborhoods and the police don't seem to know how to put it in check. Come on an hour to get control WOW>>>>>
Maybe Mr. city manager you can get together with the District attorney and throw a stiff sentence at these repeat offenders, $1000 bail, come on people please quit wasting the city's tax dollars and resources on these repeat fights and put some DAM teeth in the sentence QUIT WASTING OUR TAX MONEY>
Maybe you have a complaint with the City Manager, but bail is set by a judge, not the manager or the police.
A District Attorney can ask for a sentence, but again, it is the judge that sets it.
