SABILLASVILLE, Md. — Maryland State Police says troopers were called to break up a large fight at a Frederick County juvenile detention facility that has a history of problems with violence.
Authorities said a fight involving more than a dozen juveniles broke out around noon Friday at the Victor Cullen Center in Sabillasville.
The Frederick News-Post reports that several staff members were hurt, and that one was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Authorities said several juveniles involved in the fight were removed and sent to other facilities.
Audra Harrison, a spokeswoman for the Department of Juvenile Services, declined to comment to the newspaper about the disturbance.
The facility manages juveniles in state custody who are considered especially challenging or aggressive.
