Several people were injured during the scuffle, which damaged at least one shop and burned a tent manufacturer NewWestFest Bohemian Nights.
Fort Collins admins officer Younger, Bob said on Sunday between four and six people were arrested on suspicion of interfering with police, obstruction, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
The exact number of arrests yesterday morning was not available, the youngest, he said, and the police to determine whether further arrests were made after all reports of police officers on site have been submitted.
The chaos around the Old City was the largest mutiny in Fort Collins, at least since 2004, when a similar disturbance erupted, he said.
The original disturbance occurred between two men Sunday inside a bar in Old City around 1 am, Younger said.
“It started as a verbal disturbance and then turned physical,” he said.
Bar staff removed the two men and a fight followed by physics at the heart of Old Town, Younger said.
The crowd became aggressive, and the situation quickly became a riot.
“I think it was just a matter of a lot of intoxicated people at the same time center,” said witness Matt Smalls, a student at Front Range Community College. “I’m sure the tear gas did not help.”
Thousands of people attended the Old Town on Saturday night to see the band Earth; Wind & Fire play the mountain stage on Avenue NewWestFest Bohemian Nights. Large crowds remained at the end of the concert, and three separate “riot” broke out, including the fight out of 100 octanes.
When the admins tried to break up the fight, a crowd of about 400 joined in the intersection of Mountain and College Avenues in Fort Collins police spokeswoman Rita Davis said.
Some people threw beer bottles, patio furniture and other objects at police. Also damaged cars, stole items from stores and suppliers to establish festival trash on fire, Davis said.
