Sandusky — While Cedar Point was closed because of a water main break over the weekend, 16 of the theme park’s employees were busy getting arrested.

Police from the park and the city of Sandusky say they arrested 16 people after a melee broke out in the employee recreation center early June 8.
Jail records say the employees were charged with aggravated rioting and disorderly conduct. At least one was also charged with assaulting a police officer. 13 of them are from Michigan; three live in Ohio.

Police responded at about 3:15 a.m. June 8 to Cedar Point Commons, which is the park employees’ housing area.

The park reopened June 9 after being closed Saturday and Sunday due to a water main break.
