Tough night in Torrance: Thing got hectic in one part of the popular Del Amo Fashion Center last night. According to the Daily Breeze, "Mallgoers were evacuated Saturday evening from the entertainment wing of the [mall]. A police helicopter and police units from Torrance, El Segundo, Gardena and Redondo Beach responded. The cause of the brawl is being investigated. Details are pending." The big draw to the mall is not necessarily its shopping options, but its "outdoor entertainment promenade featuring an 18 screen AMC Movie Theatre plus 9 restaurants," and the Lucky Strike Lanes. They dubbed it the "Lifestyle" area when it opened in September 2006, and CurbedLA pointed out that it "has all of the accoutrements of a modern shopping experience: 'inviting' outdoor walkways, 'upscale' retailers, and a 'unique experience.'" We're tempted to concur with their tongue-in-cheek emphasis; it is just a mall, after all...and a great place for an "inviting," "upscale," and "unique," brawl, apparently.
