OSAGE BEACH - A 20-person free-for-all where some participants armed themselves with shovels and rakes landed seven adults and three juveniles in jail.

Three of them are expected to be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

The incident was reported just minutes after midnight Saturday on Lions Road in Osage Beach. When police arrived at the disturbance, as many as 20 suspects were involved. Several of the suspects were wielding shovels and rakes, using them as weapons in the melee.

Officers from Lake Ozark, Camden County Sheriff's Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol assisted Osage Beach Police in getting the crowd under control.

A few minor injuries were reported but none of the injured sought treatment at the time of the incident.

A second round of fights that broke out while police were questioning the suspects was quickly diffused by the officers.

As many as 10 suspects were taken to the Camden County Jail. Names were not released.

The Osage Beach Police report did not include any information on what triggered the brawl.
