Fight Breaks Out in Shopping Center Parking Lot

Posted by Rick Charney on June 16, 2022

Any business that has a parking lot or garage can never underestimate the security challenges they bring. Of course, you always want visitors, customers and employees to be safe without having cause for concern. However, just one bad incident can drive those people away and bring negative publicity and potential lawsuits your way.

In this Arrest of the Month video, we saw a physical altercation take place in a shopping center parking lot just before midnight. When it came to quick action, we didn’t pull any punches.

One night around 11:45, a Stealth Monitoring security operator observed a fight between a group of people in a retail center parking lot. The driver of one car rammed into the back of another vehicle, which caused a physical altercation. Based on the observed activity and site protocols, our monitoring operator called police.

Responding officers were on the scene minutes later. The driver of one of the vehicles was trying to flee the property, but officers were able to catch him and make an arrest.
