MOORHEAD, Minn. -- Police arrested six people early Wednesday at a convenience store after riders from a party bus got into a brawl inside the store, toppling product displays.
Moorhead police, along with Dilworth and Clay County officers, were called about 12:30 a.m. to deal with the fight in Moorhead, police said in a statement.
Officers found 24 people at the store or a short distance away. One man received minor injuries to his face, but he declined medical treatment, police said.
Based on witness accounts and store surveillance video, officers arrested six people on suspicion of disorderly conduct and booked them into the Clay County Jail.
