19 Arrested At Mall Were Between 13 And 18 Years Old

19 arrested at mall

A melee in which 19 people were arrested at a mall in the Chicago area involved mostly teens, and all of those taken in were between the ages of 13 and 18, it has been reported.

The Ford City Mall was where 19 were arrested this weekend after an appearance of the boy band Mindless Behavior, an apt name considering the shenanigans that resulted in the mass arrests.

The Inquisitr reported earlier when the 19 were arrested at the mall, noting that a spate of recklessness appears to have broken out in the crowded shopping center and quickly spiraled out of control:

“The mall was forced to close due to the rowdiness of the teens who descended upon shopping center after the Mindless Behavior appearance had concluded. Police said the mob soon spread to other areas. Over 100 individuals were spotted in the parking lot of a nearby Firestone. Others were seen trying to break into cars near a Sports Authority store.”

In response, 50 police cars and a helicopter were dispatched to the Ford City Mall to quell the raucous teens, and when all was said and done, the 19 were arrested after the melee.

ABC confirmed the 19 arrests at the mall were of teens between the ages of 13 and 18, and reports:

“Most are charged with misdemeanor mob action. A 16-year-old is charged with battery of a mall security guard who was trying to evacuate the mall … Ford City Mall senior general manager John Sarama says the incident wasn’t related to an appearance by the boy band Mindless Behavior, which ended about 45 minutes earlier.”

Before the 19 teens were arrested at the mall, police say they flooded the parking lots, climbing on cars and generally engaging in rowdy behavior.

    This is how organized gangbanger operates these days. There sending their kids out to cause trouble destroy property that isn’t theirs, and then it’s the same old sad story. We poor, feel sorry for us. Owners sell to avoid future property damage they take control of the established business. It’s a planned event that is meant to look like a random act of violence. Hold the parents accountable, don’t feel sorry for them. SUE!

    Doesn't matter what nationality they are. Everyone should be more concerned as to why these teens were so angry to begin with…sad.
