This is what happens when a flash mob goes wrong.

A Louisiana mall was emptied out after the congregation escalated into a messy brawl. ABC News reports:

Cellphone video captured the chaos as shoppers jammed escalators and ran for the nearest exits in Baton Rouge, the state capital. Employees at the mall were ordered to abandon their cash registers and evacuate immediately.

The fight broke out in the mall food court, where 200 teens had gathered for a flash mob.

Hicks said deputies are investigating the events that led to the fight.
