BALTIMORE (AP) - Seven juveniles and two adults are facing criminal charges after a fight broke out with security guards at a Baltimore-area shopping mall.

Baltimore County Police say the incident began shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday at White Marsh Mall. Police say security guards were escorting large crowds from the mall, which closes at 9 p.m.

At one point, police say an adult male tried to punch an off-duty police officer. Police say a crowd formed as the officer worked to arrest the man who punched him. The officer then used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.
