The video, apparently posted to Facebook by one of the students, shows two boys fighting while several others cheer them on.  After they finish fighting, two other students enter the circle of people and begin fighting.

“It was important for the Kissimmee Police Department to make a very visible and public and arrest in this case,” said Chief Lee Massie, “We needed to make a point to the other students witnessing the arrest that participation in that type of behavior comes with serious consequences.”

Two other students may also be charged in the fight, according to police.
