Five people who have no affiliation with Stony Brook University were arrested Saturday night during an on-campus event organized by a student organization at the Student Activities Center.
"The five individuals who were arrested were acting in a disorderly fashion and after repeated requests by police to disperse, officers attempted to place the suspects under arrest," university spokesperson Lauren Sheprow said in an email to Patch on Monday.
They were arrested by Stony Brook police officers, three of whom were injured when some of the suspects resisted arrest, Sheprow said. No students were harmed during the incident.
It was not immediately clear what types of charges were filed against the five who were arrested.
In a separate incident on campus over the weekend, reported by The Statesman, an outdoor concert on the steps outside the Staller Center was brought to a temporary halt when students who had not gone through a university police checkpoint stormed towards the front of the show. According to The Statesman, university officials agreed to let those students stay and allowed the concert, featuring The Cataracs and headliner Mac Miller, to proceed.
