A man was arrested following a large fight in the parking lot at Old Bridge High School after a boys basketball game Thursday night authorities said.
Oluwafei M. Adeleye, 25, of Old Bridge, was charged with disorderly conduct, police said. He also had a warrant out for his arrest.
The brawl at around 8:15 p.m. involved as many as 50 people and included snowballs being thrown, according to police. The fight occurred after Old Bridge played Monroe Township High School.

Police also responded to an altercation in the parking lot of Wendy’s on Route 516 just before 9 p.m., but the crowd was dispersing when officers arrived. Police could not confirm the incidents were related.
“It is disheartening when any young adults from anywhere make poor decisions,” Old Bridge school superintendent David Cittadino said. Cittadino deferred further comment to police.
Old Bridge defeated Monroe, 55-51 in the basketball game.
