An Augusta Richmond County Sheriff's Department investigator examines the car that was involved in a hit and run at the Augusta Mall Friday evening May 15, 2009.

The injured were taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, according to Gold Cross EMS Maj. Gene Peebles. He said the injuries were non-life threatening.

Emergency vehicles were sent to Augusta Mall about 9 p.m.

A police dispatcher said someone reported a car had struck several people in the parking lot near the mall's food court entrance.

A Richmond County sheriff's deputy at the scene said a man was arrested in the incident. Authorities were questioning the man late Friday and charges were not immediately available

Don't go to the mall on the

Don't go to the mall on the weekends unless you're armed. Seriously. It's not the same place it used to be. So many thugs and lowlifes hang out there to prey on people, especially the elderly, It's also free babysitting for bratty pre-teens whose moms don't want to be bothered with them on Saturday afternoons.

I was down the street when

I was down the street when they pulled this guy over at the Copy Center on Wrightsboro. They took no chances they pulled him over, guns drawn. The car looked like hell as you can see from the pics. The drivers mom actually showed up saying something to the effect of "i'm here to get my son" apparently she didn't understand that this guy plowed through a crowd of people. The events were explained to me by a Marine who actually followed the car reporting his position to police so this evil evil person would not get away. So my friend and I shot some video of the felony stop and we went to the mall and what I saw blew my mind. they loaded a woman on a backboard and her INFANT. I am talking a few months old at best. Definately thorwing some prayers their way.

He must have hit someone

He must have hit someone pretty hard. The windshield is cracked very badly. BobbyHodges is right, it reminds me of comedian Chris Rock's famous lines, "In every city there's always the white mall ...and the USED to be white mall." haha

some of you idiots have

some of you idiots have certainly found your outlet -- AC's comment section is filled with ASSumptions that you haven't had the chance to verbalize outside of your peers because you know you'd get your [filtered word]es kicked if the right person heard you.
how long have you fools lived in augusta? kids go out on weekends. you've labeled them as "thugs" but they're all bored kids so if you don't want to deal with their antics then don't go sat & sun evenings. the majority of them are there to socialize and get out of the house, not bother the "elderly". from the looks of it, most of you are all a bunch of old frumps anyway so sit at home, turn on your tv, and SHUT UP.

Unpublished

waugusta92 maybe those with less intelligence that use violence, rather than reasoning and logic, to solve their problems could learn a lot from this outlet because it forbids the opportunity to kick [filtered word]es when they are frustrated from losing arguments. And if the North is so great, and the South is such a joke, why are people moving South in drones? Maybe because the North is so full of hate and the South so full of hospitality? The other thing is, are bored kids and thugs going to keep the mall in business? Try presenting your 8:14 post to the former (operative word "former) operators of the Regency Mall in South Augusta. You'll get a nice intelligent northern-style answer.

To waugusta92 this was a friday night not sat. or sun. they are not socialized people that want to hang out with there friends they just want to show the brand of boxers they wear and give people a hard time just like the group of 3 that beat up the older gentleman at Christmas time in the sears bathroom(guess you for got about that ) They should be ashamed for how they talk,act and dress in front of others(and most importantly their parents should be ashamed)

And futher more shame on the augusta mall for not allowing the reporter there and letting all the other crap in that you do.That 's why we don't like to come anymore .we go to columbia or atlanta when we want to go to a mall. Because they don't have that crap going on there!
