SACRAMENTO, CA - Sacramento police have identified two of the three teens arrested in Wednesday's fight at Arden Fair Mall.
The incident created chaos and panic as shoppers thought gunshots were fired.
Dremon O'Deal, 19, and Louis Santiago, 18, were apprehended along with a 15-year-old teen and booked on charges of fighting in a public place, according to Officer Doug Morse.
Santiago said he and his friend O'Deal went to the mall to go shopping. The two were in the food court when another guy approached his friend and threw him a look and that's when O'Deal got mad, Santiago said.
"[O'Deal] threw a punch," Santiago said. After that, the group began to throw punches. "We just got into a fight; there were two of us and 30 of them."
