*A huge brawl broke out at the massive Mall of America in Minnesota, supposedly having to do with rap stars Drake and Lil Wayne. And it all went down on Monday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
Nine people were arrested out of the mob of shoppers who fought in several areas of the plaza.
It all started in the food court but quickly moved to other parts of the complex. Witnesses said the fight started after a rumor that Drake and Lil Wayne were coming to the mall.
But to the rioters’ dismay, the guys weren’t even there.
“There were drinks thrown on the floor and chairs being thrown everywhere,” witness Tess Dessalgne told Minneapolis’ KARE TV. “Everyone started running towards the fight.”
According to a mall spokeswoman, the incident involved about 50 young people. But witnesses say there were no fewer than 200 people.
No serious injuries were reported.
