Let’s fight everybody, let’s fight
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was fightin’ to the Jailhouse Rock

Surveillance footage from an Illinois county jail caught the moment a massive brawl broke out.

Watch the footage!

The fight starts and stops several times before prison officers arrive, and even then, a few more scuffles break out including the sucker punch of one inmate.

According to the Chicago Tribune, two inmates were injured so badly that they had to be transported to local hospitals to be treated. Police reported that a homemade weapon was found after the brawl.
