Five people were taken to hospitals with minor injuries.

After a status update in a Long Island court on Wednesday, Scooter’s lawyer told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview, that his client should not be found guilty because the mall security and police were to blame.

“We believe the people that were responsible for security should have to answer... and the five minor injuries that were caused were because of the way the police handled the cancellation of the event,” said attorney Ravi Batra.
