Two groups of fighting teens got into it with cops on a Brooklyn subway platform in an incident that resulted in five arrests, police said.

The rumble went down at 2:20 p.m. Friday between “two large groups” on Jay St. in downtown Brooklyn, said police sources.

The fracas spilled downstairs into the Jay St.-MetroTech subway station, and one of the youths punched a cop, police said.


Video provided to the Daily News shows several teens battling the officers.

Onlookers filmed the scene with cell phone cameras as officers struggled with more members of the groups.

Three 18-year-olds were charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct, said authorities.

A 16-year-old girl was charged with reckless endangerment, and a 15-year-old was charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct.
