Local News

VANDALIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Vandalia Police were on the scene of what officers said was a large fight at Scene 75 Saturday night.

Scene 75 said in a Facebook post that security had escorted a group out of the building after they began shouting and becoming rowdy.

Police told 2 NEWS officers were initially called after a fire alarm went off just before 9 p.m., but when they arrived they found several people fighting outside.

The fire department had also responded to the scene because of the alarm. When they arrived a large group crowded the fire truck acting disorderly and fighting, according to police.

Additional police departments were called to the scene to assist with breaking up the fight. Officers told the crowd to leave and 2 NEWS crews saw the scene start to clear around 9:30 p.m.

Police said no weapons were involved in the incident, no one was injured and no arrests were made. It is not known how many people were involved in the fight.

Scene 75 said that the group involved were “unruly kids”, but police have not specified the ages of those involved.

The entertainment center is temporarily adjusting their policy to only allow two children per adult 25 or older after 5 p.m. as a result of the incident.

“We feel this is a strong policy that will deter such action, particularly when tensions may already be acute from our rightfully strict enforcement of curfew laws, mask requirements, and capacity constraints,” said Scene 75.
