Massive Brawl Underway at Valley View Cinemark

Posted By on Fri, Jan 2, 2015 at 11:34 PM

At least 10 police departments are on scene at the Valley View Cinemark after 200-300 juveniles began fighting in the theater lobby, according to a photographer from WEWS Channel 5.

The nearby Quaker Steak and Lube has closed its doors, telling patrons that it's not safe.

The Valley View police chief confirmed to News Channel 5 that no arrests have yet been made, but that cops were telling the restaurants to lock their doors.

In an interview with WEWS Michael Baldwin, the police chief said the fight began at 9 or 9:30 p.m. inside the theater, moved outside, and the situation is now under control.

No word as to why the fight started, or how that many teenagers got involved.
