Cedar Point police responded to the park's rec center a short while after 3 a.m. Sunday, only to find a large group of people embroiled in a fight, according to a Sandusky police report.

By the time back-up Sandusky police officers arrived, they found multiple men wrestling with Cedar Point officers, the report said.

Sandusky police tried to keep a gathering crowd restrained as Cedar Point personnel struggled to arrest seven men—one of whom swung at an official, the report said.

Another man, Joshua Brown, allegedly refused to leave the area, despite repeated warnings. When Brown continued walking towards the other men already in handcuffs, officers ordered him to the ground, the report said.

Three officers tried to get Brown on the ground, but due to his size, Brown ended up dragging the officers behind him as he walked away, the report said.

Finally, a Taser was used to place Brown under arrest.

Those who were arrested were charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and aggravated riot, a fifth-degree felony.
