The teen arrested has probably been watching Jersey Shore and thought it would be cool to fight like they do.

It should read, "THE Staten Island Mall," because that's what it's called. Haha Staten Island is a small place!

Details?    

Ladies do not punch each other. Little street gutter brat wanna be's, who will do anything to be noticed, punch each other. It is so unclassy. The guys on Jersey Shore said it best. There are girls you F**k, and girls you wanna treat better.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

People start crap with celebs (hate em or not) all the time. They want to see them get knocked down a peg or two. But it brings the attackers' raging insecurities & low self-esteem right out front. Pathetic. My mom told me a story about one of the old guys (Bogart, I think), who went into a bar &, tired of being hassled, got everyone's attention. Once he did, he told the place something like "Thanks for your attention. I just want everyone to know that anybody in this bar can beat me up. Thank You". Words to that effect, so he didn't have to yet again deal with all the b.s. when all he wanted was a night out, autographs notwithstanding (he didn't mind those). With Angelina's abrasive & TOTALLY annoying personality, someone would be gunning for her sooner or later, but the same could be said about any one of them. Why? They're famous & make a lot more money than you do, plain & simple. That said, shopping at a Staten Island mall? What, she didn't earn enough to go to Short Hills?

I hope the punch in the head knocked some sense into her. The girl walks off the number one rated show in the country not once, but, twice!

i don't get this is any different from the fights on the show. she's gotten into a few fights on camera. this show is being seen by millions and teaching ppl this how you deal with problems, you punch them out. she can't blame anyone but herself.
