Their arraignment before Judge Roger Duncan was in a packed courtroom at the Pima County Superior Court.

Anthony Bonfiglio, Matthew Garcia, John Hyatt, Angel Castaneda and Steven Hagland are all charged with aggravated assault.

Two others, Mark Bret and Yvonne Davis, are facing charges of hindering prosecution.
