HOOVER, Al.. - Women pulling each other's hair and throwing punches disrupted Black Friday shopping at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, Alabama.
About a dozen police officers rushed to stop a fight late Wednesday night at the mall's common area. They later learned it was related to a personal conflict and not the shopping frenzy, but the incident terrified shoppers.
