MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Madison police say two young teens have been arrested after video of their street fight was posted to Facebook.

A Capital Times report on Tuesday says the video showed adults standing around watching the boys fight in the street last week. No serious injuries were reported.

Police say the fight lasted about 2 1/2 minutes. The video shows a 14-year-old repeatedly slamming the head of a 13-year-old into the pavement. The younger boy told police he may have blacked out briefly.

Police began to investigate after they learned of a video of the fight that one of the boys had posted on his Facebook page.

The teens were arrested on tentative charges of battery and disorderly conduct.
