Several arrests made after ‘large, unruly crowds’ at Hampton Beach

Several people were arrested in Hampton Beach on Friday night after officers dealt with a number of "large, unruly crowds" that had formed on the beach.
In a Facebook post, the Hampton Police Department says the groups were dispersed as officers saw fighting break out.
The groups then proceeded to Ocean Boulevard and began disrupting traffic, according to police.
Additional police units have been requested from surrounding towns and agencies across Rockingham County.
Several arrests were made throughout the day and evening for disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and alcohol-related offences, police said.
There were no injuries or damage to report.
"We want people to enjoy the beach. Those who seek to cause violence and disruption will be prosecuted," the post on the department's Facebook page said.
