Black Friday brawl at Culver City mall brings police response

Culver City police responded to calls of flying fists as a mall opened early for Black Friday.

Sgt. Emery Eccles said a brawl broke out between a group of young men outside the H&M store in the Westfield Culver City shopping center.

But when police showed up, Eccles said one of the men who remained behind didn’t want to press charges.

Crowds were largely peaceful, he said.

“There were just thousands of people. It was extremely busy,” Eccles said. “We had several radio calls of unruly crowds and things of that nature, several disturbance calls, but no arrests.”
