WATCH: Hundreds of Teens Go on Destructive Rampage at TN “Putt-Putt Fun Center”

From Winnie Wright:

Parents dropped off 300-400 kids at Putt Putt on Summer last night, according to MPD, breaking #COVIDー19 rules.

A witness tells me the girl seen here was there abt 2 hours before mgmt made everyone clear out. She reacted like this, he says, when they wouldn’t give her a refund.

Golf and Games released the following statement on Facebook:

Unfortunately, yesterday evening we had an incident that we have never experienced in 57 years of business. Parents chose to leave large groups of teenagers at our facility without parental supervision. Some of those people chose to create a disturbance the likes of which we have never seen. We are very thankful that none of our Golf and Games family or customers were injured in this situation. We are actively working with authorities to identify those involved and hold them accountable for their actions. Going forward, all minors must be accompanied by their parent or guardian while at Golf and Games. Anyone that is left unattended will be asked to leave. We are and always have tried to be the locally owned p-lace for family entertainment for almost six decades. And we will always welcome those who choose to share their family experiences with us. We look forward to serving you soon.

Fox13 reports Memphis, TN  Police were called to the Putt-Putt Fun Center on Summer Ave. Saturday night after a complainant told police that parents were dropping off multiple children at the facility.

There were about 300 to 400 people at the business which put them in violation of COVID-19 order.

One person began to throw fireworks in the crowd which caused a stampede, an MPD spokesperson said.

During the stampede suspect, a teenage boy, 13, began pulling plants out of flower pots, police said.

An officer saw the suspect take one of the plants and throw it at a black sedan parked on the parking lot.

The stampede occurred when the complainant told those inside the business that they were closed and would not be issuing refunds, police said.
