CHAOS!! Over 100 Teens Go On Destructive Rampage Thru Wisconsin Mall Possibly Organized On Facebook (VIDEO)

The incident that brought more than 100 disruptive teens to Mayfair Mall Sunday was planned through social media, probably on Facebook, mall manager Steve Smith said Tuesday.

 

Nine juveniles were apprehended Monday night in connection with the incident, which forced an early closure of the mall Sunday.

Wauwatosa police also confirmed that a gun was fired outside the mall late Sunday afternoon. Wauwatosa CrimeStoppers on Tuesday announced a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the gunman.

Also on Tuesday, both Mayfair and Bayshore Town Center in Glendale announced tougher teen curfews in response to the Sunday incident. Both centers now will restrict access to the center by teens under 18 on Sunday afternoons, in addition to Friday and Saturday curfews that are already in place at both centers.

In his first interview since the fracas occurred, Smith described the events and Mayfair's response:

Sunday was a normal, busy Sunday at the mall. But at 3:30 p.m., things changed.

"There were large numbers of teens getting off the buses and arriving by car. All of a sudden, we had large amounts of teens in the center," he said.

That was unusual for a Sunday, and the kids' behavior was unlike that of teens who come to the center to shop and have fun.

"They were much more disrespectful - sitting on tables in the food court, running up and down the escalators, being a problem for security officers," Smith said. "They came in with the intent of disrupting business that day."

Security guards tried to stop the behavior, but the teens resisted and challenged the guards. When the guards told small groups to leave, they returned through other entrances, said Smith, who was out of town when the incident happened.

The guards decided to close the center to prevent the unruly teens from re-entering. The guards swept the center from one end to the other to get everyone out, Smith said.

There was no damage to the mall, and no one was injured Sunday, Smith said. Boston Store had some damage when the teens ran through the store knocking mannequins and merchandise to the floor, but no dollar estimate was available Tuesday.

9 juveniles arrested

Nine juveniles, all from Milwaukee, were arrested. A 17-year-old girl was referred to the Milwaukee County district attorney's office on a retail theft charge. Eight others were referred to Milwaukee County Children's Court for possible charges.

The mall is continuing to work with Wauwatosa police, who are investigating the incident, Smith said.

The Sunday event is not believed to be connected to an attempt by Wauwatosa West students to stage a "flash mob" game of freeze tag in the mall on Dec. 23. The Tosa West effort was thwarted when the mall managers learned of it ahead of time.

A flash mob is a group of people who arrange by e-mail or social media to assemble suddenly in a public place, perform a prearranged act, and then disperse.Full Story

CRESCENT CITY, CA – When Joseph Finigan decided it was time to become serious about pursuing a career in hip-hop, he knew he had to come up with a name that not only represented who he was as an artist, but which would also be memorable to anyone who heard it. He wanted to come up with a name that was as far away from ordinary as possible, especially since his real name is Joe. …See More
