SALEM, N.H., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Police in New Hampshire said they arrested six people accused of brawling over a parking space in a mall parking garage.

Salem Police Deputy Chief Shawn Patten said a fight broke out Sunday at the Mall at Rockingham Place parking garage when two groups of people laid claim to the same second floor parking spot, WMUR-TV, Manchester, N.H., reported Tuesday.

Multiple officers responded to calm the situation, but some of the participants refused to keep cool heads, police said.

"Subsequent to that, six people were taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct," Patten said.

All six of those arrested were from Lawrence, Mass., police said. They are scheduled for arraignment Jan. 28.
