BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- Three people, including two teenagers, are facing charges for a brawl at Beachwood Place Mall on December 26.
Beachwood police have charged Kiesha Gore, 41, with disorderly conduct and inducing panic. A 14-year-old will be charged with disorderly conduct, inducing panic and assault, along with a 16-year-old girl arrested the day of the fight. Police said the teens were involved in the fight, itself, and Gore egged on the juveniles.
“It's amazingly alarming that type of behavior takes place anywhere, let alone a mall,” said Beachwood Police Lt. Gary Haba.
Police said two groups of teens that had a past beef ran into each other at the mall when fists started flying.
“Nothing in our investigation revealed that it was a planned incident,” Haba said.
The fight was recorded and posted to social media. Police said the video helped lead them to the suspects.
Haba said Beachwood Place security was fully staffed for the large holiday crowd and got the situation under control until Beachwood Police arrived.
“The mall is still a safe place to shop,” Haba said. “This type of thing can happen at any public location.”
Fox 8 News could not reach Gore at her Bedford home Tuesday. She’s scheduled to appear in court in February. Court dates have not yet been set for the teens.
