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 on Tuesday 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.
During last week's accident in which a semi plunged into a ravine near the Ohio Valley Mall, a scuffle broke out between a mall security guard and a woman taking photos of the accident.
Mall Director of Corporate Communications, Joe Bell, told WTRF on Monday that the fight occurred on mall property and the security guard was doing her job and was explaining to the woman that no pictures were allowed on mall property when the fight broke out.
