A teenager was arrested Friday night after allegedly attempting to disarm a police officer at the Glowfair festival.
Police say the incident happened as they were trying to control a large crowd on Bank Street, around 8:30 p.m.
Police also say the individuals were not compliant with the officer's verbal warnings, causing the officer to pull out a baton, which then prompted a 17-year-old male to try to disarm them.
During the altercation, officers used pepper spray, and the teenager was arrested.
He was later released with pending charges.
