A mob of teens erupted in violence at a Putt-Putt Fun Center in Memphis, Tennessee Saturday night, and it was all caught on video.
According to Memphis news station WREG, the owner of the miniature golf course shut down the business because parents dropped off the large crowd of 300-400 teens causing the business to be in violation of local COVID-19 restrictions.
The teens burst in destructive violence after employees told the teens they would not be issued a refund.
A video of the chaos went viral on social media.
In the video, you can see some teens tearing down, and throwing plexi-glass partitions at the cash registers. Some also threw rope dividers at the employees behind the counter.
“You are supposed to be with family and friends, so it’s supposed to be a fun place, but you see all of these aggressive acts,” Lucas Tremmel said when he saw social media video of the incident.
No one was hurt in the rampage. Memphis police are working to find out who was involved.
The center’s general manager said in a statement that the violence that erupted was something the company has ‘never experienced’ before.
“Unfortunately, yesterday evening we had an incident that we have never experienced in 57 years of business. Parents chose to leave large groups of teenagers at our facility without their supervision. Some of those people chose to create a disturbance the likes of which we have never seen. We are very thankful that none of our Golf and Games family or customers were injured during this situation. We are actively trying to identify those involved and hold them accountable for their actions. Going forward, any minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Anyone that is left unattended will be asked to leave. We have been the Memphis area’s locally owned place for family entertainment for nearly six decades. We will always welcome those who choose to share their family experiences with us. Please understand this is not a reflection of us or our park. We look forward to serving you soon.”
