Police officers injured after mass brawl in Ballyclare
A number of PSNI officers were injured after a mass brawl in Co Antrim.
Police were called to a disturbance in the Ballyclare area at around 3am yesterday.
Around 50 people had gathered on Main Street in the town, with a fight breaking out.
Following the arrest of a 23-year-old man on suspicion of offences including being in charge of a vehicle while unfit through drink or drugs, assaulting police and criminal damage, the crowd became hostile towards police.
CS spray was then used to restrain a 36-year-old man who was subsequently arrested on suspicion of disorderly behaviour. He was released, pending report.
Inspector Alison Ferguson said: "A number of police officers received minor injuries during the incident."
She added: "I would appeal to anyone who has any information about what happened last night to get in touch with police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 290 of 13/5/18."
