A fight at a Cook County jail led to the indictment of 16 inmates on mob action charges in Chicago, authorities say.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced the charges Monday. He says the fight occurred around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the maximum security housing tier of the county's sprawling jail.

Video of the fight was captured on surveillance cameras.

Dart says two inmates were taken to area hospitals for their injuries, which included puncture wounds. Others were treated at the jail. None of the injuries was considering life-threatening.

Authorities say they recovered a homemade weapon after the fight.
