The Ohio Valley mall security guard who started a near brawl in a mall parking lot over photographs and videos being taken of an accident scene has been fired. After this video went viral, it seems that mall management had no choice but to let this person go. There certainly were many better ways to handle the situation you can watch unfold in the video below. First we get an update from wtrf.com:
The mall security guard at the center of a parking lot brawl with another woman has been fired.
Mall Director of Corporate Communications, Joe Bell, told WTRF that an internal investigation has been concluded, and company officials “determined that the guard had not performed to the standards required of the company’s security guards.”
The guard’s employment was terminated as of Monday. The Belmont County prosecutor’s office is still deciding whether criminal charges will be fired against the guard or the woman she scuffled with.
