HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – Huber Heights police had to put out a county-wide assistance call after several fights broke out in the parking lot of Orbit Fun Center and confirm five individuals are now facing charges.
Lt. Tony Ashley of Huber Heights Police said four of the individuals are juveniles and one is an adult.
Police responded to a fight call just before 11:30 Saturday night in the 5000 block of Nebraska Avenue. Upon arrival, police said there were more than 200 juveniles and several fights taking place.
Ashley said when units arrived, security was already breaking up a fight inside and it was spilling into the parking lot when they asked for countywide assistance.
Patrol units from several agencies arrived to help break up the fights and order was eventually restored.
Three 911 calls were made, including two from the owner, who made one before the fight broke out asking for police assistance and crowd control, and one after the fight broke out. A witness also called 911 after the fight broke out.
“Can we please have a unit come down? We just had a fight break out and we got it broke up but we want to have a unit come out,” one 911 call said.
“Okay, do you still want the extra patrol or do you need a unit down there because of the fight?” the dispatcher asked.
“Well, I guess the fight broke up but I’d like to have at least a unit or two down here to help with crowd control,” the 911 caller responded.
Ashley said the Orbit Fun Center is a hot spot for kids, and they have responded 32 times in the past three years to the location for disorderly calls.
“That doesn’t include the times we were already out there doing a walk through or checking on security,” said Ashley. “But what happened Saturday night is unusual as far as having that many kids fighting at one time.”
The owner says that management and staff will meet with police to evolve safety measures at the roller rink.
No injuries were reported and the owner said no property was damaged.
