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.

    Glad to see the teens of America continue to insert the word "like" between every other word.

    Holiday vacation from school.
    It's not normally this bad, but CNN obviously took a break from their deleting duties.

    Dear CNN:

    Congratulations. Your boards are the biggest joke in blogdom.

    Your "report abuse" button is apparently disabled, because nothing is ever done about the vitriolic and disgusting garbage that is posted here.

    These boards are now know as a safe haven for schoolchildren trolls who like potty humor.
    Please post a thread about feces and fetish s*e*x, because that is all that is ever posted anymore anyway.
    Perhaps this way, they will post on that thread, and leave the serious posters here alone.

    The contempt that CNN shows its readers and posters by not moderating this blog is reprehensible.

    I think I can put your mind at ease, DjkrB. Pooping in purple does not mean you're gay. It means you have advanced rectal cancer.

    Sometimes, when no one else is around, I put flies in the microwave and cook them. I enjoy the power that gives me.
