Police arrested the 13-year-old boy for misconduct at an emergency after he and others entered the blocked-off parking lot and began arguing, police said.

Others also entered but complied with orders to leave, reports said.

As the crowd became more turbulent, officers from Reynoldsburg, Gahanna, Bexley and Capital University were summoned to the scene.

According to reports, 200 to 300 juveniles and adults were in the area.

She swore at officers and was arrested for misconduct at an emergency, reports said.

The 17-year-old girl also refused to leave the area and said, "arrest me," according to reports.
