    Two women were arrested Saturday after police had to break up a brawl -- over the last pair of pants in a particular size, authorities said.

    The fight happened shortly before 1 p.m. at the Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg.

    Officers arrived at the Body Central store to find two women punching each other and wrestling on the ground, they said.

    More units were called in to control the crowd at the store, which included friends and family of each woman.

    The suspects have been identified as Andrea N. Williams, 22, of Gaithersburg, and Ethelyn R. Gladney, 21, of Montgomery Village.

    Both women declined medical treatment.

    They were transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with second degree assault, disorderly conduct, failure to obey a reasonable and lawful order, and disturbing the peace. Both were released on bond.
