Kissimmee police say arrests are coming after a video showing students fighting near a middle school was posted to Facebook.

KISSIMMEE, Fla. -

Police continue to investigate after a video posted to Facebook shows students fighting near Kissimmee Middle School while surrounded by a large crowd.

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.

Police said the students attend Kissimmee Middle School, New Beginnings Education Center and Osceola High School. 

Kissimmee police spokeswoman Stacie Miller said arrests are expected by the end of the week. 

"9 times out of ten you don't have evidence in a fight- so we do have evidence and we will proceed with charges and hopefully it will deter this type of behavior," Miller said.

The fight took place near a bike trail off Dyer Boulevard near Kissimmee Middle School, and police said the trail is a problem area for teen fights.

School officials said the students will not be disciplined because the fight happened off campus.

Kissimmee police say the teens involved will most likely be charged with disorderly conduct.
