The Woodland Hills Youth Development Center in Tennessee is going to need some tighter security.
Two dozen teenagers revolted Wednesday night at the Nashville detention center, just two days after 32 boys executed a mass escape under a chain-linked fence, authorities said.
The latest uprising involved six of the teens involved in the earlier outbreak, and they fled their dorms in the same way they did on Monday – by kicking through aluminum panels installed under the windows in a common area.
This time, none of the boys made it out of the prison's exterior perimeter, and authorities said the situation was "under control" by Thursday. Of the 32 teenagers who escaped on Monday, however, six remain at large.
A video posted by the Associated Press shows one teenager carrying a long stick and another shoving a security guard in the yard. The altercation ended quickly when the guard fled behind a set of bleachers. A police helicopter could be heard buzzing overhead.
There were no injuries among either the teenagers or staff, according to an update posted Thursday morning on the website of the Tennessee Department of Children's Services. Local police officers had formed a ring around the facility, and teams from the state Department of Corrections trained to handle uprisings had entered, put them in handcuffs and returned them inside.
