Teen brawl sparks mall stampede

Posted: Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Six teenagers have been arrested in a mass brawl that sparked a stampede and the evacuation of a shopping mall in Louisiana.

More than 200 teens were in the food court when the fight broke out Saturday night at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. The mall shut down early for the night after everyone was evacuated.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies arrested three boys and three girls, ages 13 to 15.

Spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks tells The Advocate the six were booked on several charges, including disturbing the peace, simple battery and resisting an officer.

Hicks said deputies were still investigating how the fight started. No injuries were reported.
