A scuffle turned into a near brawl between a group of people at the Godfrey Walmart Sunday night and charges could be filed in the case today. The Madison County Sheriff's Department plans to meet with the Madison County State's Attorney today to go over the incident and present evidence against possibly as many as five people.
Authorities believe the dispute began in the store, but ended as one group moved outside. The fighting began again outside the store but then ended again before police arrived on the scene. Police say both parents and teens may have been involved at some point in the altercation and some of the people in the two groups knew each other prior to the fighting. Authorities did not give a reason for the fight, and did not indicate if there was any damage inside the store. The fight was reported at the Godfrey Walmart around 6:50pm Sunday.
