CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Police in Cedar Rapids have charged three people for their involvement in a fight at Lindale Mall last month. Video of the fight surfaced on social media this past weekend.

Kenneth Keith, 37, of Cedar Rapids and two minors have been charged with disorderly conduct. Kenneth was taken to the Linn County Jail and allowed to sign a consent to delay. The 15-year-old and 14-year-old were released to their mother.

The fight occurred on the afternoon of Saturday, February 15th. Officers responding to the call arrived within four minutes, but police found no victims or participants at the scene. Police said in the two weeks since the fight, no one had come forward with information or filed any police reports in the matter.
