POPLAR BLUFF, MO (AP) - Authorities in southeast Missouri's Butler County say two teenage girls whose fight was captured on a video that went viral are expected to face charges, and so are two men, including the father of one of the girls.

KFVS-TV reports that the girls, ages 18 and 19, fought in the parking lot near a flea market last weekend, apparently a boy. The violet fight was posted on Facebook.

Authorities say that in the video you can hear a man who is allegedly the father of one of the girls cheering her on.

Earlier this week in Caruthersville, also in southeast Missouri, two teens were charged as juveniles, accused of beating up a mentally disabled man and posting the video on Facebook.
