Two women were arrested Friday after a fight caused the main water valve to break and flood multiple apartments at a housing complex in downtown Atlanta.
According to AJC, authorities reported that the 1.5-inch valve broke after 19-year-old Tamia Robinson had an altercation with a security guard at The Mix, an apartment complex that houses students from Georgia State University and other schools. Witnesses say Robinson was involved in a previous fight during a Halloween party in one of the apartments.
Water leaked through the ceiling and flooded nine floors, leading students to evacuate the building. Georgia State student Angel Onyori said one of her friends witnessed the fight and stated it started over a man.
“This just goes to show, boys, are not worth it. You’re not here for that.”

Although students were allowed back into the complex after the investigation, it is unclear how many units were affected by the flood.
While waiting for instructions from officials, another student confronted Robinson about the flood. The confrontation led to another fight and the student, Tashaine Richardson, was apprehended by officers. Robinson faces charges of criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. Richardson faces a charge for disorderly conduct.
The fight went viral on Twitter after user @OneSixSlime detailed how the fight began.
