MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Late last night a huge fight broke out at Juvenile Court on 161 Adams according to the Shelby County Sheriff's Office.

A sixteen year old male detainee used a squeegee on a long mop handle to break the sprinkler system in his cell, according to the shift supervisor.

When then the sprinkler system went off the doors to the other cells automatically unlocked and opened.  Approximately fifty detainees walked out of their cells and began fighting each other. Deputies from SCSO Homeland Security and MPD took control of the mezzanine level of the detention area.

All detainees were moved to the south side of the detention center.

The juvenile who started the incident was charged with Felony Vandalism.
