Teenage brawl at Mall of Louisiana makes national news

Louisiana made the national news after a large fight involving a group of teenagers broke out at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge Saturday night. By some estimates, as many as 200 people were involved at one point.

Newspapers across the country ran stories indicating that authorities believe that teenagers used social media tools, particularly the photo-sharing service Instagram, to initiate a disturbance at the mall. The fight that ensued caused the mall to be evacuated. The mall did not reopen that evening, though restaurants and the movie theater were accessible.

No serious injuries were reported after the fight. There were also no reports of significant property damage.

Regardless, as of Monday, six teenagers -- one 13-year-old , three 14-year-olds and two 15-year-olds -- had been arrested in connection with the incident. They are likely to face charges of disturbing the peace, loitering, interfering with a law enforcement investigation and resisting an officer.

The East Bat Rouge Sheriff's Department has said that it is still investigating the incident and that more arrests might occur. If they do, we will be sure to bring you an update.
