MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

Five Murphysboro people were arrested Wednesday after a video surfaced on social media, portraying them participating in a brawl.

On August 22, 2015 at 7:24 p.m. officers from the Murphysboro Police Department were dispatched to 18th Street at Alexander Street in Murphysboro in reference to a large group of people fighting.

Officers arrived to find approximately 25 to 30 people in the street.

The group quickly ran from the area and nobody was willing to provide information about the fight.

Hours after the fight took place, several phone videos began to surface on social media.

Many of those involved were identified by law enforcement.

On Wednesday, Murphysboro Police officers located and arrested Kurt Jacobs, 18, Tyler Palmer, 29, Krista Ticer, 20, Ona Freeman, 27, and Darren Beard, 26, all from Murphysboro.

All five people were served complaints for fighting by agreement and released on a recognizance bond.

Additional arrest are expected in the near future.
