Share

AL.com reports that police and firefighters responded to reports of fighting in the Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover, Alabama, around 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

The fight happened on the second floor of the mall.

The Black Friday madness began early in one Alabama mall - which was forced to shut down as a result of several fights that erupted between shoppers.

No, not talking about the annual practice of carving up turkeys to engage in familial sup around the old oaken dinner table, but the borderline insane practice of Black Friday shopping. Both girls were treated for minor injuries and no arrests were made. No one, however, was taken to the hospital.

Police said the fight was of a personal nature, and not over sales. According to Robinson, that started a second fight.

A video where we see two women reined in by the forces of law and order has been circulated on the social networks.

The mall is set to reopen today at 6 a.m. and will remain open until 10 p.m. The statement also said "no major incidents were reported".

About a dozen police officers rushed to stop a fight late Wednesday night at the mall's common area. A YouTube video of the brawl hit the internet on Friday, prompting news coverage from a number of sites, including the Daily Caller.
