600 People Involved In Christmas Night Movie Theater Brawl

Police had to break up a 600-person brawl in a Florida movie theater Wednesday night. The brawl broke out around 8:30 PM on Christmas night outside of the Hollywood River City 14 movie theater in Jacksonville, Florida.

Lauri-Ellen Smith, a spokeswoman for the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office stated that the department is describing the incident as a “melee.” An off-duty police officer who was working as a security guard was rushed by several individuals.

“The officer administered pepper spray to disperse the group, locked the doors and called for backup, following protocol,” Smith told reporters. “After the officer administered the pepper spray, “upward of 600 people moving throughout a parking lot about the size of a football field began fighting, disrupting and jumping on cars.”

ABC News reported that 62 police officers were called to the scene to help break up the movie theater brawl. WCNC stated that there were no serious injuries reported with this incident.

Christmas time can be a wonderful time of year, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t bring up stress and sadness. The Inquisitr reported Wednesday on little Laney Brown, the girl who’s caroling wish was fulfilled, and stated that the 8-year-old girl passed away early Christmas morning. Her family posted an official statement which reads as follows:

“She was our angel. We will miss her smile, her laughter, and the way she would light up any room she was in… Even as her illness progressed, Laney never stopped having faith, she continued to smile in spite of her pain, and she showed more concern for all of us than for herself.”

The Florida movie theater brawl resulted in the arrest of five individuals, all under the age of 20, including one minor. According to ABC News, Tevyn Alonza Davis, 19, was charged with resisting arrest and breach of the peace. Jaquade Marquis Miller, 18, was charged with fighting and resisting arrest. Khalil Ahmad Bradley, 17, the only minor charged with a felony, was arrested for resisting arrest, refusal to disperse, and breach of the peace. Two others were charged with misdemeanors.

    With names like Tevyn, Jaquade,Khalil no need to question why this started but I'll venture to say, BLACKS ACT LIKE ANIMALS

    Now everyone be a good liberal and repeat after me…
    Diversity makes us stronger. Diversity makes us stronger.
    Diversity makes us stronger. Diversity makes us stronger.

    Why don't all you crackers SHUT DA HELL UP!!! I'm sick of your rascist remarks toward my kind. WE CAN SHOOT A FEW OF YOU PREJUDICED DOGS, and not worry about you racist confederate scum anymore!!! Not all African-Americans behave like "animals". There are many who cannot behave accordingly on some counts. Just so quick to judge us, well we don't care.

    At least they didn't use a gun to shoot up the school, a bomb to blow up people or killed their whole family like WHITE AZZHOLE IDIOT MALES DO.

    Until we admit the problem, we will not be able to have a conversation to find the solution. The problem: I did not see a single white person there and this all started when the group tried to rush past the ticket counter without paying.

  6. Kyle Roggenbuck

    Wow. Way to prove the point that blacks are angry, violent animals incapable of reasoning or improving themselves… Want to beat the stereotype? Quit acting like one!

    Really? Maybe thee are a few schools in Africa that would beg to differ? Maybe a school or two in Chicago, LA, Houston, and New York. Those don't get posted to the news because white America still coddles the blacks and tries not to report the race of criminals when it is blacks. There is a whole rash of crimes at the U of MN that are ALL black o white.

    Whites don't and neither do latino's,correct? Whites just jump of buildings with three year olds and latino's kill their whole family. Being a black male, i'll take this.

    I reckon that's cuz the black males who would do something like that drop out before getting to high school.

    Your comment is very comical, sir. I find the hypocrisy of your logic hilarious! Its ok for y'all to call us 'crackers', 'honkies', 'whities' and what have ya, but if we say the 'N' word, we're racist as fuck. Double-standards, bro, double-standards…

    Marlon here was simply stating that he is tired of people deciding that the police arrested them because they were black. So many people nowadays state the age of racism is over, but really? It's just gotten worse! Just because he's angry about this doesn't mean he's acting like an animal! He's being human! When can we just throw all this stuff about skin color aside and be a society of people! I am not black, I am not white, I AM HUMAN!

  12. Kyle Roggenbuck

    They were arrested because they were there. They were black. There were no whites or Asians among the 600 people. If people do not see a clear demographic trend, here, they never will and will not be a useful participant in finding a solution to the problem.

  13. Erin Higgins

    Hunter French Good question. A better one is when are ppl gonna stop living a stereotype? When are they gonna stop complaining when they are called out on it? When is the black man gonna stop acting like he's still being oppressed by us "whities" and move on past the "my ancestors were slaves and it's the white man's fault" mentality? We don't owe anyone, ANYTHING!! You must do for yourself and stop expecting a handout/ hand-up! FYI, my ancestors didn't come over on the Mayflower; my ancestors all came to the U.S. after WW1, so me and my ancestors were not part of the "problem". The ONLY race who has ANY RIGHT to complain are the Native Americans that were on this land BEFORE the "pale faces" arrived and massacred their kind to claim this land as their own. African-Americans have way more freedoms and privileges in this great country than the people who have the only rightful claim to it! So y'all need to take a seat and shut up! I, for one, am sick and tired of being blamed for YOUR choices in your life! Not my fault, nor the other white folks' for that matter, that these ppl chose to act a fool!

    The ammount of ignorance white people publicly demonstrate regularly, with no shame I might add, is utterly embarrasing.

    Just look at the film footage…parents can identify some of those faces and know that their children were acting like damn fools with total disregard for another persons safety. When will the law step away and allow parents to take total control of their children? If parents weren't afraid of being arrested for emotion, physical, and mental abuse etc…and kick their kid in the ass once in awhile we probably would have less kids behaving in this manner. My parents never beat me but when I was popped, or swatted I knew my butt better get in line and I didn't continue to do things my way or else.
