There is a new development in the case of the 19 young people who were arrested in the melee at a Chicago mall over the weekend.
CS reports, "Ford City Mall senior general manager John Sarama says the incident wasn't related to an appearance by the boy band Mindless Behavior, which ended about 45 minutes earlier."
The mall had to be shut down as the rowdy crowd spilled outside into large groups in the parking lot. Two people had to be taken to hospitals with minor injuries. One of those hurt was a bus driver after being hit by something that was thrown at him or his bus.
The arrest tally was 19 after the event got out of control.
Although there were no thefts reported, signs were thrown about, cars in the mall parking lot were damaged.
"They jumped on top of cars," a witness identified as Robert told WLS. "They stopped traffic. They busted a lady's windshield in the back of her car. They knocked the rearview mirrors off."
"It was like crazy," witness Lexus Finley told WLS "And then kids just started going crazy. There was like gang members there."
The incident began a little before 5 p.m. on Saturday after fans lined up to get autographs by the band Mindless Behavior.
The mall decided to call off the event after the crowd became unruly. Witnesses reported more 100 people were running through the mall.
