Reports: 9 arrested after Mall of America fights

Police have arrested several people after a "series of fights" at the Mall of America that sent chairs flying and caused after-Christmas shoppers to flee, the mall said Tuesday.

Mall security officers and police in Bloomington, Minnesota made several arrests, the mall said. CNN affiliate KARE reported that nine people have been arrested, including several juveniles. Video posted online showed chairs flying during the melee.

The Mall of America describes itself as the largest retail and entertainment complex in the United States. It says it has more than 520 stores, 50 restaurants and attractions that include an aquarium, flight simulator and a spa for children.
