LA VERGNE, Tenn. - A so-called "Fight Club" involving 12-year-old girls has led to a criminal investigation in La Vergne.

Local police were alerted to a video of two girls fighting that had been posted on YouTube.

"Some of the things we see today are extremely violent," said La Vergne Police chief Mike Walker.

The video begins with one young girl punching the other in the face and then they begin fighting for the camera in a public park while a group of people stand watching.

"Just watching is was shocking," said a concerned parent who found the fight video online.  She said the girls involved are in the same classes as her daughter.

"It was shocking to see 6th grade girls who my child goes to school with acting this way," said the mother.

Chief Walker said he couldn't believe what he was seeing.

"It's such a violent society now they have no concern for each other or for anyone else and that's sad," said Walker, who opened a criminal investigation.

Walker was concerned about the staging of such fights and the possibility that some adults might have been involved.

"It's like a fight club. they think it is for fun, but what happens when someone hits the concrete and is seriously injured for life," said Walker.

La Vergne detectives have tracked down the two girls fighting and both could face juvenile criminal charges for disorderly conduct.  Police are still investigating the possible involvement of adults.
