Sanders is being charged with obstruction and providing police with a false name after lying about her name and her child's name.

The juveniles were all charged with disorderly conduct and affray.

"Mind you, we are not finished yet," Douglasville Police Chief Gary Sparks said. "We're going to keep on until we get everyone who was involved in this incident."
