People swarmed an ATM in Harris County after customers realized the machine was mixing up bills Sunday night.

A few fights ensued when people waited in line to make money from the ATM glitch, the station reported.

But the fun ended abruptly when a local sheriff's cruiser drew up after receiving a call to say that the ATM was acting up.

Messages left for North Carolina-based Bank of America weren't immediately returned Monday. As a long line formed, deputies showed up and dispersed the crowd and shut the ATM down.

Bank of America said yesterday, November 26 that they were aware of the cash machine error in Houston, as reported by KPRC-TV on the same day. We have resolved the matter.

The man posted about it on social media, which caused a crowd to rush the location to try to get some free extra cash, deputies said.

Bank of America also said in a statement that customers will be able to keep the additional dispensed money.

According to authorities, the Harris County Sheriff's Office was tipped off about the malfunction just after midnight Monday morning.
