A total of 19 people were arrested at a mall in Chicago over the weekend after a “Mindless Behavior” event, WLS reported Sunday in a story that is buzzing the Internet.
The Ford City 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.
Raw YouTube video of the melee is posted below. If you fast forward to 00:32, you can see a young man throwing a chair at a car. If you know any of the culprits, Chicago police would like to hear from you.
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.
