Boston Police report arresting eight people, between 12 and 17, after a large fight in which some of the combatants allegedly directed their small fists of fury at officers as well, outside the movie theater Sunday afternoon.
WFXT reports the brawl grew to as large as 200 people at one point - and that theater workers tried to evacuate movie goers at the height of it all.
Police say officers from several districts and state troopers responded to 36 District Ave. between the old Olive Garden and the new Starbucks, around 4:50 p.m. for a fight involving a large group:
Officers observed the large group of juveniles causing disturbances. Multiple Juveniles failed to disperse from the area and became confrontational with officers. As officers attempted to apprehend suspects, they were met with resistance by other juveniles who began to assault officers.
Aside from one 14-year-old, who was charged with being delinquent for disturbing the peace, all the teens and the two 12-year-olds were charged with being delinquent for assault and battery. One of the 12-year-olds was also charged with being delinquent for assault and battery on a police officer, as were three 14-year-olds and a 17-year-old, police say.
