Layton police say a small riot broke out in the Layton Hills Mall after some nail salon employees tried to force officers out of their salon.
They say it started when officers from the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing were doing a routine inspection.
Police say those officers were verbally and physically assaulted. That’s when mall security was called to the scene.
When Layton police arrived they say they calmed the situation until another employee showed up and started talking with the other employees inside.
At that point, one of the men got into a confrontation with an officer.
