MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Police handcuffed and arrested multiple students at an elementary school in Tennessee.

The students — ages 6 to 11 — were accused of not stopping a fight that happened several days before outside of school.

A video was taken of the incident, and officers obtained arrest warrants for students who did not break up the fight.

The video showed a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old having a disagreement.

Parents said the kids were charged with criminal responsibility for the conduct of another.

The children were released from a juvenile center, but now local community members are calling for action.

Police said they plan to review the incident within the next two weeks.

Officials at the elementary school released a statement that said the arrests were not a result of any behavior that occurred on school property. The school was merely the location of the arrests.
