Twelve people are facing charges after a street brawl in broad daylight -- and a bystander caught it all on video and posted it online this week.

Please be advised that this is an intense fight, and some may find the video offensive.

The fight apparently happened March 11 in the 1400 block of West Second Street in Waterloo. You can see multiple fights break out in broad daylight, right in the middle of the street.

Waterloo Police say it all started with a fight between two girls at school, and spilled over into the street after classes were done for the day.

This video was posted on Twitter and YouTube, but was taken down by the user just within the last couple of hours.

It starts with the girl in the pink and the girl in the blue and white. More people jump in on their fight, some trying to help, and others throwing fists.

Just seconds after, a fight between these two men break out.

Since it was all caught on video, police say that helped with their investigation.

No one was seriously injured in the fight, and no one was taken to the hospital.

Twelve people are facing charges of disorderly conduct and fighting. The severity of the charges will depend on each person's criminal history.
