Anderson Mall closed early after fights between teens

ANDERSON, S.C. (WSPA) — Police say Anderson Mall was forced to close an hour early Saturday after a large group of teens caused problems at the mall.

According to officers, the problem began around 8 p.m. with two separate fights between teens. 

Mall security and Anderson Police officers asked several groups to leave the mall, but some refused.  Mall management closed the mall early to avoid problems.
