Police made six arrests and deployed pepper spray after a crowd of over 1,000 people attending a shoe-signing event at the CambridgeSide Galleria in Cambridge, Massachusetts got out of control on Monday evening. The crowd had turned up to see hip hop artist Desiigner and Boston Celtics rookie Jaylen Brown.
Police attempted to evacuate the event after the crowd surged through the mall. According to police the crowd grew increasingly aggressive, with some people throwing bricks, glass and other objects at officers outside the venue. Several attendees were hospitalised and six people were arrested.
