Fight posted on YouTube lands couple in jail

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A fight between two teenage girls, which was recorded and posted to YouTube, has resulted in the arrests of a Baton Rouge man and woman.

William Parker, and his wife, Chanda, were arrested by East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies just hours after detectives watched the video. Deputies said the battle between the teens was like dog fighting.

The clip shows a 14-year-old and 16-year-old punch and slap each other, while a man and woman stand there egging them on.

The Parkers face numerous counts, including two felony counts of cruelty to a juvenile. If convicted, they could face up to 10 years in prison. Authorities are in the process of trying to identify any other adults in the video.
