AKRON, Ohio – Investigators in Ohio say they have YouTube to thank for arrests in connection with a large disturbance.
The Summit County Sheriff's Office said Friday it arrested two people and issued warrants for three others for the fight in Twinsburg Township outside Akron.
Sheriff's Patrol Commander Major Roger Kline says people were already leaving the scene when police arrived at the disturbance in October.
But then police got a tip that someone had posted a five-minute, 16-second video of the fight on the YouTube video-sharing Web service.
Police said they were able to identify suspects after watching the video and conferring with Twinsburg High School teachers and administrators.
