Flash Mob Shows Up At Jacksonville Walmart

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ When police broke up a weekend house party in Jacksonville, the party continued at a nearby Walmart Supercenter.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s officials say hundreds of young people caused havoc in Walmart Saturday night.

A three-minute video posted on YouTube shows the “flash mob” of teens tossing produce, riding in shopping carts and mugging for the camera.

Walmart spokeswoman Dianna Gee told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/LxRK5b ) store officials are reviewing the video.

She says employees did as they were trained by steering clear of the chaos and calling 911.

Police say officers were called to a home earlier Saturday to help with crowd control when a party got out of hand.

As the partygoers left, many headed to the store about two miles away.

The damage to the store was minimal.
