Police have arrested several people after a “series of fights” at the nation’s biggest mall sent chairs flying and caused after-Christmas shoppers to flee, the mall said Tuesday.

Mall security officers and police in Bloomington, Minnesota made several arrests, the Mall of America said. CNN affiliate KARE reported that nine people have been arrested, including several juveniles.

Video of one incident showed a man picking up a chair to throw as crowds of shoppers, some screaming, fled a mall food court. The video also showed a group of what appeared to be youths brawling before police officers intervened.

The incidents began about 4 p.m. Monday, when a group of individuals began fighting in the food court, KARE said. Police told the station several other fights flared up elsewhere in the mall at about the same time.
