MCALLEN, TEXAS (AP) - Police in Corpus Christi, Texas, have issued arrest warrants for six employees of a state home for the mentally and developmentally disabled accused of staging fights between residents.

Authorities say the six Corpus Christi State School employees are charged with injury to a disabled person and that one of the six was in custody Thursday.

Police say they learned of the fights last week after someone gave a cell phone containing videos of the brawls to an off-duty officer.

Corpus Christi police Captain Tim Wilson previously said the videos show fights dating back to 2007 in which mentally disabled male residents are seen fighting each other while the employees watch.
