MCCRACKEN COUNTY - The Kentucky State Police were called to assist in restoring order at the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center.

On Monday, the Kentucky State Police received a call from the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center, reporting that a handful of juveniles were destroying property. After attempting to negotiate with the juveniles unsuccessfully, detention staff contacted Troopers to assist in restoring order. 

Upon arrival, Troopers were reportedly able to restore order quickly, and the juveniles voluntarily re-entered their cells.

A staff member of the detention center was treated for minor injuries as a result of the incident.

Troopers have opened an investigation into the incident to determine whether additional charges will be filed against the juveniles that were involved.
