Juveniles charged for mall brawl

Video of a teen fight in the Augusta Mall over the weekend has gained attention after a cell phone video hit YouTube.



According to Richmond County sheriff's Capt. Scott Gay, the fight involving multiple 15- and 16-year-olds stemmed from an ongoing Facebook feud and escalated while the girls were in the food court of the mall around 8 p.m. Saturday.


Security and deputies stepped in and eventually stopped the fray but not before a glass hanging over food at Sbarro was broken, Gay said.


The juveniles were charged with second degree criminal damage to property and affray.
