OCEAN CITY, Md. - A crowd of several hundred blocking the boardwalk and some attacking police led to a dozen arrests over the weekend in Ocean City.

According to Lindsay Richards with Ocean City Police, the first incident happened around 12:30am Saturday in the area of 7th Street and the boardwalk. Richards said officers arrived to find a large, disorderly crowd which quickly grew to several hundred people. Richards said the crowd was very hostile and aggressive towards officers.

Dozens of police officers responded to the scene including assistance from Maryland State Police and Worcester County Sheriff’s Office. Nine arrests were made in this incident, Richards said.

When officers were able to disperse the crowd at 7th Street, another large crowd grew in the area of 10th Street, according to Ricahrds. Officers responded and some members of the crowd went into a nearby bar and began throwing bottles at officers Richards said. Several additional arrests were made. 
 
Then another incident happened Saturday night around 9:45 p.m. in the area of 1st Street and the boardwalk. According to Richards, officers saw a man kick a trashcan to the middle of the boardwalk, but when several officers approached the man in order to place him under arrest, police said the man was uncooperative and assaulted officers. A large, hostile crowd then gathered during the arrest and several other officers were assaulted, Richards said. A total of five arrests were made in this incident.
 
No officers or suspects suffered injuries during either of these incidents.
