BATON ROUGE - On Friday video surfaced of a fight between a group of teens and a mailman in Baton Rouge which led to one teen being arrested, according to police.
The video, posted by BatonRougeCrime on Twitter, appears to show the group of teens surrounding the postal worker and shouting threats. The mailman responds, chasing the teens as they circle him, then eventually gets in his truck and drives away.
