Danbury police charged three juveniles in Black Friday fight at Danbury Fair mall.
Danbury Police charged three juveniles who may have been involved in the fight that led to nearly 100 people fleeing the Danbury Fair Mall food court at about 7 p.m. Friday.

While many people fled the food court in fear, hundreds of others at the mall never knew anything might have happened and continued shopping.
Danbury Police released the following press release:

Danbury Police said the department had received an overwhelming number of 911 calls in regards to the incident that occurred on Nov. 29 a few minutes before 7 p.m. Some callers reported a gun with possible shots fired. Connecticut  State Police as well as local surrounding agencies provided support and assistance during the initial response. Soon after arrival, it was determined that a fight had taken place in the Food Court near McDonalds. As a result of the investigation into this incident, three juvenile arrests were made. 

Juvenile #1 was charged with Breach of Peace. Juvenile #2 was charged with Breach of Peace. Juvenile #3 was charged with Assault 3rd and Breach of Peace.

The investigation has determined that there was no gun involved with the fight that had taken place.

The Danbury Fair Mall Security and the Danbury High School administration have been instrumental in our follow up investigation. Our ongoing investigation will continue to hold any other persons involved accountable for disrupting the mall on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

In some of the malls in upstate NY (Crossgates in Albany for example) juveniles must be physically in the company of someone 21 or older after 4 pm. Strictly enforced too! The kids think it's a pain but it does alleviate problems

The mall has become a place for kids ( especially teens) to hang out without supervision! Even shopping can be an issue at times with some of the not so nice teens hanging out out ... There needs to be new policies putin place, it is a shame for those who do behave. However, it is what we live in today! kids just cannot be kids any more, because parents do not know how to be parents in many cases! The mall is not a babysitter for your teens and children people, do not just drop your kids off and leave, we do NOT live in the 50's anymore ... though we would like to believe our children are safe, they just are not! Safe is a word that truly does not exist anymore, stay with your children, and teach them what saftey really is! Although what happened at the mall did NOT involve a gun (this time) you never know in todays world what is around the corner or rightin front of you ... love your child and keep them safe!!!
