POLICE: Mentally Disabled Men Forced To Fight Each Other

Police say cell phone video alerted them to a fight club being put on at a Texas home for the mentally disabled.

Seven employees at the Corpus Christi State School have been suspended.

Police believe the employees had been forcing mentally disabled residents into fights for at least a year.

Officials say there are at least 20 cell phone videos of the fights, going back to 2007.

Officials also say there were sixty confirmed cases of neglect or abuse in the home in a year's time, but there was not enough evidence to press charges.
