WELL, SO MUCH for the holiday spirit.

A YouTube video shows one female shopper zapping another with a stun gun during a brawl inside Franklin Mills mall early yesterday morning.

Franklin Mills officials did not respond to a request for comment, but addressed the incident in a series of statements on Twitter.

"We are committed to the safety of our shoppers and will not tolerate this unacceptable behavior," read one tweet from the mall's Twitter account, @FranklinMills.
