Why can the school suspend me for a fight off school grounds, on the weekend, with someone who doesn’t even go to my school?

I got in a fight when I was in the Eighth Grade on a Saturday at a gas station with somebody I didn’t even know (that didn’t go to my school). I got 5 days of suspension for it. Why is my school allowed to do that even though they weren’t involved in any way?
