Another Fight Breaks Out At Hamilton Place Mall; Brawl In Food Court Caught On Video

Monday, March 5, 2018

Another fight involving multiple people broke out at Hamilton Place Mall on Saturday morning.

The incident, which involved people being thrown to the floor and stomped, was caught on video. That video was posted on Facebook by Saturday afternoon.

The video is titled : "Fighting for the Jordans at Hamilton Place."

Several youths began fighting and throwing punches near one of the food vendors. After one youth is knocked to the floor another person comes over and begins stomping him in the head.

Amid screaming, the brawl continues in a nearby section of the food court before the combatants eventually make their way to an exit. 

When it has just ended, a security guard comes running into view.

Chattanooga Police said they were called about a fight in the food court shortly after 10 a.m.

They said there was no indication of a fight when they arrived so they cannot confirm that one took place.

Mall officials said security and the Police Department "responded immediately and the issue was diffused within one minute."

Here is the Facebook video of the brawl:
