LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An 11-year-old Missouri girl has been arrested for assault, after video of a playground fight goes viral.

Cell phone video allegedly shows the 5th grader beating and dragging another girl by her hair across the playground.

The school district says the incident happened during the weekend.

A parent of another child says his daughter was once threatened by the same girl. "It takes a lot to raise a child, but it starts at home with your mannerisms and your characteristics and your traits growing up, but I also want my children to feel safe in a public school," said Brian Logan.  

Police say they are questioning every child who was at the playground that day.
