    Physical education got a little too physical at one Montgomery County school Friday.

    Two gym teachers got in to a fight at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, Md. Students witnessed the fight in the gym area about 11 a.m.

    One student told News4 that at one point during the fight, the two men were rolling around on the gym floor, and at least one of them had abrasions on his face when it was over.

    Principal Khadija Barkley sent a letter home with students that said the incident was "completely inappropriate and unacceptable, and such behavior will not be tolerated. The actions of our staff members undermine the core values we must model for our children."

    Montgomery County school officials are taking administrative action.
