A Louisiana mall was evacuated Saturday night after a flash mob resulted in a violent brawl and the arrest of six teens.
Cellphone video captured the chaos as approximately 200 teens packed the food court area of the mall before a fight broke out forcing the shopping center to close down early for the night after everyone was evacuated.
One eyewitness told MSNEWS Now that she was in the food court with her one-year-old son when the large fight broke out.

"People were jumping over my tables and other tables and knocked over my baby stroller," she said. "I grabbed my son and took off running but all the doors to the stores were closed. I ran through a side door into the parking lot and ran around trying to find my car."
According to the Associated Press, East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputies arrested three boys and three girls, ages 13 to 15.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks told the Advocate that six teens were booked on several charges, including disturbing the peace, simple battery and resisting an officer.
"We think there was some sort of post on social media about a flash mob for tonight which drew such a large crowd of juveniles," Hicks told reporters.
"Never been that scared in my life," Juston D'Nea Millet wrote on Facebook. "People were running everywhere. It was like a movie, but you were in it."
Reports indicated that deputies were still investigating how the fight started. No injuries were reported.
