JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A local teenager accused of being involved at a movie theater parking lot fight pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday morning. 

Police said the fight happened at River City Marketplace back in December.

Jaquade Miller, 18, was granted indigent status while in court at 9 a.m. A public defender will represent Miller.

Police arrested 19-year-old Tevyn Davis, Miller and 17-year-old Khalil Bradley. Two other people were arrested, but their names have not been released due to their ages.

Investigators say the fight began when a group of teenagers tried to barge into the Hollywood River City 14 Theater without paying on Christmas night.

An estimated crowd of 600 people started to gather in the parking lot.

JSO spokeswoman Lauri-Ellen Smith told Action News an off-duty officer tried to subdue the crowd by using pepper spray and a melee erupted. The off-duty officer then called for backup and 30 officers responded to the scene.

Miller faces charges of resisting an officer and affray.

The four other people face charges as well.

The next pre-trial hearing for Miller will be at 9 a.m. in room 308 on Feb. 19.

Part me resents this case. However the case should be probation with community service time required. Give them about 500 hours community service to perform. That should keep them out trouble and hopefully set them straight. If they fail to show for community service repeatedly with out valid dr excuse notes then give them 6 mos in juvenile detention lock up.

THIS ONE was 18, and the other 3 arrested was under age. The parents must be so proud they let those kids 'go to the movie' knowing they didn't have the money to get in? "Oh they's just kids being kids"????...except this huge of an incident involving KIDS, COULD HAVE GOTTEN SOMEONE KILLED. Because if they DIDN'T know if they had 'movie money, they sure as h3ll wouldn't have known if they had guns. Ignorant parents.
