LEWISTON, Maine May 26 2010A party that got out of control ended with several arrests and an injured officer on the Bates College campus early Wednesday morning, according to police.
Investigators told News 8 that students were celebrating on campus Tuesday night when someone called 911 and requested an ambulance for a girl who needed help.
According to police, students would not let the ambulance through. Bates College security officers were finally able to get people to move for the ambulance, but that’s when police said the crowd became unruly, yelling and taunting officers.
Security called in Lewiston police for help. When they responded, police said, the crowd turned on them. Lewiston Sgt. Rob Ullrich was attempting to arrest a student when he broke his leg in two places, according to police.
In all, nine people were arrested on charges of failure to disperse and disorderly conduct.
