Several clips filmed during the riot that broke out at the Ford City Mall in Chicago have surfaced on YouTube.As I reported yesterday, a crowd of teenagers took the shopping center by storm, after a concert and autograph signing session by band Mindless Behavior.
Posted above is one of the clips filmed on a cell phone by a participant at the brawl. You can see as hundreds are gathered in the parking lot, after the shopping mall was closed down by outnumbered police officers.
19 people have been arrested after jumping on cars, breaking windows, screaming and reportedly throwing snowballs at police. They have been charged with mob action, battery and criminal trespassing.
2 people, a child and a CTA bus driver, have been hospitalized with minor injuries reported during the melee.
