Following an uptick in fighting among area fans, two high schools in Henrico County, Va., have altered rules for spectating at athletic events.

As reported by ABC affiliate WRIC in Petersburg, Michael Jackson, president of Hermitage High School in Henrico, made an announcement in a letter to families on Wednesday.
