Teens from O'Connor and Brandeis High Schools returned to Whataburger Monday to apologize after a 30-second melee left the restaurant trashed, forcing the location to close early for the night.
The fight apparently started after Brandeis defeated O'Connor 12-10 in the annual football faceoff, and students from both schools ended up at the Whataburger -- which happened to have decor up supporting both schools.
"We understand that this act was an emotional moment between a small group of students and not representative of the entire student population," the restaurant chain said in a statement, adding that it would not press charges against the students. "The Whataburger team will continue to welcome Brandeis and O'Connor students at our restaurants and we're also committed to continuing the partnership and support both high schools."
