Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly had to be restrained during fight at high school game

Ole Miss starting quarterback Chad Kelly had to be restrained from a fight at high school football game in Buffalo Friday night, according to eyewitnesses.

Kelly, who graduated from St. Joe's in 2012, is apparently back in Buffalo during his team's bye week. He was watching St. Joe's play Bishop Timon Friday when a late hit on St. Joe's quarterback – Kelly's younger brother, Casey – started a fight.

Kelly joined in the ruckus and had to be restrained. He's wearing jeans and a gray hoodie in the above video that was submitted by a reader and the one below from Tom Martin of WIVB-TV.

The game was suspended after the brawl, which happened midway through the second quarter.

Kelly, who is expected to be selected in this year's NFL Draft, has led Ole Miss to a 3-2 record this season. The Rebels are ranked 14th in the latest AP poll.

Late Friday night, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze tweeted about the incident.
