Along with those great Black Friday deals are always a few tangles, fist fights, and outright brawls in Americas stores and this year is no exception.
Several young shoppers erupted in fisticuffs outside a Forever 21 store at the Lehigh Valley Mall in Whitehall, Pennsylvania:

A Walmart in Hendersonville, Tennessee, served as the backdrop of another melee. Local police were on hand to quickly break it all up, though:

Two girls reportedly got in a tussle at the Tysons Corner Mall in the Washington D.C. Metro area, as well. It appears one flipped her wig:
Last night, supposedly 2 girls got in a fight on the third floor of #TysonsCornerMall and one of their wigs were last seen falling graciously to the first floor. #RIP to that wig 😂
People tried to get it back up to her though. #NotAllHeroesWearCapes pic.twitter.com/yS1GoFhjbU

In another case, in a Dallas, Texas, Walmart, people began tussling to get hold of flat screen TVs. But while the fists flew, others were taking selfies among the pugilists.

Things got a bit more out of hand at the Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, North Carolina, where police put the stores on lockdown until they sorted it all out.
There was one report that someone flashed a gun during the brawl, but police could not confirm that. Officials confirmed that there was no active shooter situation, the Charlotte Observer wrote.
The mall was on lockdown for several hours until officers cleared the area. No injuries were reported but stores surely lost sales.
Thus far, though, the fight game for 2019’s Black Friday seems mild compared to previous years.
Fist fights erupted at a shopping mall in Kentucky in 2015, for instance. Then there was the mall brawl in Modesto, California, in 2016. Last year there were fights in Georgia and Palmdale, California, as well.
