Bodycam video released Friday shows a riot earlier this month at the Cuyahoga County Juvenile Detention Center that caused an estimated $200,000 in damages and boosted calls for reform to the facility.

Six teens-- one 14-year-old and the rest 15 years old -- face several felony charges in connection with the Jan. 8 incident.

Inmates used broken metal furniture to smash security glass and damaged cell doors, sprinklers, the ceiling, showers, toilets, light fixtures, a television and windows, according to a Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department report.

They used an electric saw to slice through the security glass
