Six people are arrested following a parking space brawl.
Malls are definitely crazy during the holiday season. The Mall at Rockingham Park in Salem, New Hampshire became the scene of a nasty fight.
Six individuals were recently arrested after the brawl broke out over a desired parking space. Two groups were fighting over the spot, located on the second floor of a parking garage and it got so bad that several officers were called to the scene to assist.
Once the fighters were separated, officials unsuccessfully tried to calm everyone down. A police official stated “Subsequent to that, six people were taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct.”
Some shoppers believe the nasty weather in the area played a part in the dispute as everyone just wanted to get inside the mall quickly. Last year, a Carowinds parking lot became a fighting scene.
A 24-year-old woman tried to secure spaces hours in advance of a fireworks show on July 4th. She stood in one space while a 46-year-old female driver tried to park. Heated words were exchanged and a fight ensued.
The 24-year-old was arrested after admitting that she punched the older woman in the face while she was in her car.
