NOW: Two cited after Thanksgiving Mayfair Mall fight


WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Wauwatosa police cited two people for a Thanksgiving brawl in Mayfair Mall.

Videos posted to social media show an officer chasing a man down an escalator before both men trip. The officer fired his taser to end the chase. The man was cited for resisting arrest.

Police said another woman was cited for disorderly conduct.

The fight happened during the beginning of the holiday shopping season.

"It just seemed like a normal day at the mall," said Val Williams.

Val and eight other family members saw the fight after shopping for 45 minutes.

"There was a whole lot of commotion, lot of screaming," said his wife Heidi Williams.

The fight followed one in mid-October which left a pregnant woman hospitalized.

Mayfair Mall reinstated a curfew for teens who are not with their parents in the mall on weekends.

Wauwatosa police are familiar with the mall. Their records show they've been called there 357 times since June.
