Police say nine students were arrested after a melee erupted outside the student center at Syracuse University following a dance.
Syracuse Police Sgt. Tom Connellan says hundreds of students were leaving the center and numerous fights were going on when officers arrived at 1:40 a.m. Sunday. When police tried to disperse the unruly crowd, Connellan says they were met with strong resistance.
Connellan said officers arrested nine Syracuse University students on a variety of charges including disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction of government administration.
The cause of the fights is still under investigation.
