NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - Tennessee authorities say thirty-two teens broke out of a juvenile detention center Monday night.

Fifteen of those teenagers either turned themselves in or were caught pretty quickly. Officers have been using dogs and choppers to track down the rest.

“Right now they're focused on finding out what happened,” said Rob Johnson, with the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.

The break reportedly went down after some kind of a disturbance.  It remains to be seen whether the escape was planned or spontaneous.
