NEED TO KNOW
  • 30 police officers needed to break up fights at America's biggest mall
  • Report: Crowds filled mall after rumors that rappers would be there
  • Video of MOA fights posted online, at least 9 arrests

Shoppers at the country's biggest mall were running for shelter when fists and chairs started flying, and it all got posted on YouTube.

More than 30 cops were called in when a fight in a food court spread throughout the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, yesterday.

It took more than an hour to quiet things down and some stores locked their doors.

The Saint Paul Pioneer Press reported the crowd filled the mall because of rumors that some rappers were going to be there. HLN affiliate WCCO reports people thought Drake and Lil' Wayne were at the mall.

It now looks like nine people were arrested, but there were no reports of injuries. The mall has a policy requiring younger than 16 has to be with an adult after 4 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
