Polk County, Florida -- The Avon Park Youth Academy sounds like a peaceful place, but on Saturday, it was the scene of a not so quiet riot.
"It's a full-blown riot out here. We need some people out here. We need everyone out here we can get," urged one man during his 911 call.
Dozens of teenage boys at the juvenile detention facility overwhelmed about 20 staff members there and then, they trashed the place.

So what started it all? The Polk Sheriff's Office says a fight broke out after a basketball game, when the losers refused to fork over three cups of instant noodles.
"So for less than a dollar worth of noodles, we ended up with a fight and tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage," said Sheriff Grady Judd at a Monday news conference.
About 150 law enforcement officers from nine different agencies responded. Judd says all it took was a show of force, deputies in riot gear, to get all 138 teenage boys to peacefully turn themselves in.
And Judd criticized a Department of Juvenile Justice rule that prohibits academy staff from having pepper spray and other protective equipment at their disposal. He says if they did, this ramen riot may have never boiled over.
"I submit to you, that the appropriate equipment there may have very well stopped that at the fight level, instead of escalating to a riot," said Judd.
However, DJJ Secretary Wansley Walters says most agencies dealing with juveniles across the nation have similar policies that ban the use of pepper spray and tasers.
"These are techniques that are not used. They can be dangerous when used with children," said Walters from Tallahassee.
Walters and her staff plan to tour the facility on Tuesday.
Officials from G4S, a private company contracted by the state to run the Academy, did not return repeated calls from 10 News on Monday.
Judd says he will send the state a bill for the Sheriff's expenses and he plans to criminally charge those most responsible for the riot.
