      YouTube video lands charges on teenagers

      Social media is making more and more of an impact in our lives and one video posted on YouTube caught the attention of the Wapello County Sheriff??s Office.

      A fight between Cardinal and Davis County High School students at the Wapello County Fairground surfaced on YouTube and spread like wildfire, all the way to the Wapello County and Davis County Sheriff??s offices.

      The video has since been taken down due to its violent content.

      It seems some things posted on Facebook between some of the teenagers initiated the fight.

      ??A lot of times you don't have victims where people report being assaulted when they??re involved in it actively. If a bunch of people get together and having a fight, you don??t get any victims from that because it's kind of a joint effort by everybody so we we??re able to identify people in the video and therefore charge them. In the state of Iowa if you engage in a fight in public areas it's disorderly contact,?? said Wapello County Chief Deputy Don Phillips.

      Six juveniles face charges ranging from disorderly conduct to assault.
